Residents Reported Trapped in Far South Kansas City MO Apartment Fire

The fire is reportedly at the Cloverleaf Apartments in the 14500 block of South U.S. 71 (I-49).

A 2nd-alarm was sounded shortly after the initial alarm was dispatched at 2:58 pm Sunday afternoon.

It is reported "numerous" occupants were "trapped" in the burning building and also it's reported people "jumping" from the building as well.

Several KC-MO FD-EMS units are being or have been sent to the scene.

At 3:06 pm- the first KCFD arriving unit reports "heavy fire showing from a 3-story" apartment building.

As of 3:20 pm-  "2 injuries" has been reported by EMS- and at least one of the victims reportedly  a child.

Injuries reported by EMS to be not life-threatening.

As of 3:28 pm- the fire is reported to be "under control,"

NOTE:  Grandview Fire- with several stations much closer to this incident- was made aware of this fire before the 2nd-alarm was dispatched- but apparently KC never requested GFD for a mutual aid response until an EMS unit was requested after the fire was declared under control.
