At least six fire companies from the Overland Park (OP) and Leawood departments are battling a fire in a house in the Stanley area of south OP-KS..
One fire company six blocks away could see smoke rising from the fire.
Upon arrival- flames were reported shooting from the garage of the home and had involved the second story and attic as well.
The man was treated at the scene by a MEDACT-EMS unit but refused transport to any medical facility.
During the firefight- firefighters rescued a dog from the house.
The animal wasn't hurt.
