Overland Park Police arrived to report a "large amount of flames from the roof."

Arriving firefighters reported half of the two story building's roof was on fire.

OPFD Media Manager Jason Rhodes says, "firefighters went into search mode and assisted several people with evacuations, one just before the roof of the apartment building began to collapse."

Police evacuated a neighboring apartment building as a precaution, due to gusty winds and blowing embers.

A second alarm was dispatched at 2:15 a.m.. Dispatchers confirmed the fire was placed under control just after 2:50 a.m..

Rhodes says 16 residents were displaced. Complex management is working to house the residents in other apartments and the Red Cross is also assisting.

Rhodes also confirmed that one firefighter was transported to a nearby hospital with "minor medical issues."

No other injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

During the fire, several other fire departments sent fire crews to fill in at Overland Park Fire stations. Shawnee Fire sent an engine company to Overland Park's station two, which is located on 95th Street near Grant Street.

Operation 100 News has independently confirmed that one person has been found dead at the scene of an early-morning apartment fire.

The fire was reported inside an apartment at 7610 West 59th Terrace just after 4 a.m. Monday. The apartments are located near Johnson Drive and Robinson Lane, or just west of Shawnee Mission North High School.

A resident of the building reported smoke from a neighboring apartment.

Overland Park Police arrived to report flames visible from outside of the building. Two officers made their way into the building to make sure residents had evacuated. Heavy smoke forced the officers to back out and wait for the fire department.

Arriving firefighters also reported flames visible from the second floor of the two story apartment building.

Firefighters located one person down in the apartment where the fire is believed to have originated. Johnson County Med-Act pronounced that person dead at the scene.

The fire was declared under control at 4:32 a.m. and out at 4:47 a.m.. No other injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Overland Park police say they arrested a man they believe to be connected with the numerous burglaries of Great Clips hair salons around the Kansas City Metropolitan area, including two in Shawnee.

Officer Jackie Zickel said Overland Park police arrested the man following Thursday night burglaries of a Great Clips in Lanexa and the Shoe Carnival in Overland Park. The arrest was made in coordination with the US Marshals Service Fugitive Apprehension Task Force.

"We have reason to believe he has been involved in several of the other robberies as well," Zickel said.

Shawnee police began investigating two burglaries of Great Clips hair salons on Aug. 23. Officers were called to the first store, located at 22403 West 66th Street, around 6 a.m. for a burglar alarm. On arrival officers found the glass in the front door had been shattered and the business had been burglarized.

Other officers began checking the three other Great Clips locations in the city and found that the store at 15943 West 65th Street had also been burglarized. Again, the glass in the front door had been broken out and someone had burglarized the business.

Major Doug Orbin said the Johnson County Crime Lab processed both scenes.

At least 12 Great Clips stores have been burglarized since June according to police although Zickel said she could not confirm if the man arrested this week has been involved in all of them.

The Great Clips located at 5012 Roe Boulevard in Roeland Park and the location at 11732 West 95th Street in Overland Park were both burglarized early Friday, August 22nd.

Anyone with information regarding any of the burglaries is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
