Fires Damages Houses in Both Kansas Citys

Fires early Saturday morning damaged two houses- one each in Kansas City KS and MO- but caused no injuries...

The first incident was reported at 1:25 a.m. near the intersection of North 17th Street and Cleveland Avenue in KC-KS..

There- fire crews found a 2-story structure with flames showing from the back side.

An additional pumper company was called to the fire before the flames were reported extinguished at 1:57 a.m..

There was no occupancy status of the burned structure heard- and a cause of that fire was pending.

Five KC-MO Fire companies needed two more pumpers to extinguish a fire in a 1-story- lived-in house in East Kansas City just before 2 a.m..

This blaze was in the 2600 block of Stark- and fire crews had water supply issues.

During the firefight- the fire crews on the inside were pulled out at 2:14 a.m. when the water tanks on their pumpers ran dry and a nearby hydrant couldn't be located. 

A hydrant a block away was located- and a supply line was extended to the pumpers by the fire- and the flames were finally put out around 2:25 a.m..

Three people were displaced by the fire- two adults and a child- and the cause of this fire was also pending an official fire department report.
