CSW BREAKING: Apartment Building Fire in Blue Springs
Virtually all on-duty Central Jackson County Fire Protection District fire crews- along with backup crews from Lee's Summit- Independence- Fort Osage and Sni Valley fire departments- are battling a fire in a 3-story apartment building in western Blue Springs.
The fire is at the Autumn Place Apartments complex in the 600 block of Northwest Candletree (off Kingsridge) Drive and began around 5:30 p.m. this Wednesday- Independence Day 2012.
"Crowd control" got to be a problem for the Blue Springs Police department- whose resources were already strained by "fireworks calls."
An injury crash elsewhere in Blue Springs reported around 6:30 pm further strained both police and fire resources.
Two children suffered non life-threatening injuries in the crash.
At 7:49 pm- the fire was reported by CJCFPD command as "under control."
No reports of serious injuries- but there have been at least 2 EMS transports of emergency personnel with heat-related medical issues from the fire scene as of 7:55 pm.
