CSW BREAKING: 2-Alarm Fire at Olathe KS Elderly Facility

No details yet on this- but at 3:25 pm Thursday afternoon- a "2nd-alarm" was dispatched for a building fire at 17550 West 119th Street.

The building is at the Aberdeen Village Assisted Living facility.

Details that have become available is that there was initially a reported "explosion" in the kitchen area of this facility and fire reportedly spread to the attic area.

As of this post- fire ground radio traffic indicates that much of the work of firefighters at this time was "ventilation" of smoke from the fire building and that the fire- appearing to not be major- was out..

There are no immediate reports of injuries and it sounds as if the second alarm was strictly precautionary.
