CSW BREAKING: Fire Destroys House- Damages Another in Kansas City KS

At least six KC-KS fire crews are fighting a fire in two houses in the southern part of that city...

The alarm sounded at 3:47 p.m. Saturday afternoon for a house fire in the 3000 block of South 46th Street in the Turner area of KC-KS.

This is west of I-635 and north of Shawnee Drive/County Line Road.

The first pumper truck arrived three minutes later to report a "1-story" house "fully-involved" in flames.

The occupants of that house were reported out and uninjured a minute later.

By 3:58 p.m.- the fire had spread to a second house to the north- as the occupants of that structure evacuate.

The fire in the second house is quickly knocked down by 4:10 p.m.- but it takes about another ten minutes to bring the flames in the original structure under control.

No injuries have been reported as of this post- and a cause and dollar amount of damage done is pending upon the official investigation.
