CSW BREAKING: Lenexa KS Car Wash Burns

With tens of thousands of dirty cars after our two big snowstorms- it's a bad time for a car wash to burn...


That- however- is what's happening in the 15400 block of West 87th Parkway in Lenexa: fire has consumed the car wash at the BP gas station there.

The call was dispatched to five Lenexa and Shawnee fire companies at 11:16 am Tuesday morning- and responding crews could see the smoke as they left their stations.

The fairly-small 1-story building had "heavy fire" showing to the first arriving fire crew.

As of this post- that fire is under control with heavy damage to the building reported.

There was a report that a crew had been installing new equipment in the car wash- but that has yet to be  absolutely confirmed.


One minor injury was reported- but that person has refused MEDACT-EMS treatment or transport to a medical facility.
