Sunday morning fire causes $30K in damages


The Kansas City, Kan., Fire Department is investigating a fire at 1930 N. 24th Street.

Firefighters reported to the scene of the fire just after 1 a.m. on May 12. No one was hurt in the fire, but it did cause $30,000 worth of damage.

It took firefighters about an hour to extinguish the fire.

"Crews on the scene within three minutes reported a single-family wood framed structure totally engulfed in fire," said Craig Duke, battalion chief of the KCK Fire Department. "Crews were informed that residents were not at home."

The fire's origin was from a bedroom inside the home - and it later spread throughout the home.
