Firefighters were called to an address in the 3400 block of west 77th Terrace in Prairie Village at 4:17 a.m.. Dispatchers received several calls regarding the fire. Those callers told dispatchers that the house was being renovated and no one was currently living in the house. The Fire Department arrived and advised that the house was heavily involved with fire. Neighbors continue to tell Firefighters that the house is vacant.

Crews reported electrical lines are down and arcing in the backyard. Firefighters did not initially make access into the structure due to the heavy fire. Defensive operations were used to contain the fire to the residence involved. After knocking down the majority of the fire using defensive and aerial operations, fire crews were able to enter the structure to extinguish the fire.

Firefighters from Consolidated Fire District No. 2 of Northeast Johnson County along with the Overland Park Fire Department responded on the call.

The fire was reported "under control" at 4:37 a.m. and then reported to be out as of 4:48 a.m.. The cause of the fire remains under investigation and no injuries have been reported.
