CSW BREAKING: Water Main Break Hampers Firefight of KC-MO Building Fire

There is a two-alarm fire burning in a building at Truman Road and Spruce.  

The initial alarm sounded at 10:33 pm Thursday night.  A working fire was declared by the first arriving crews.

During the firefight- FD radio reported "two" hydrants went dry- and "a fairly-large water main break" was reported on Truman "west of the fire."

All interior firefighting crews were ordered outside.

At 10:47 pm- a 2nd-alarm response of four more fire companies was requested.

As aerial water streams with limited water pressure are being used on the fire- two additional pumper companies were requested.

More than a dozen KC-MO fire companies are working at this fire as of this report- with no reports of any injuries thus far.

Heard no "official" declaration- but fire under control by 11:55 pm..
