Fire Crews from Johnson County Fire District's No. 1 and No. 2 were called to a mobile home fire in the 900 block of Cimarron Trail. The address is located in the Conestoga Mobile Home Community in Gardner. The call was dispatched at 8:51 a.m.. Responding fire crews immediately advised that smoke was visible from outside of their station. A Johnson County Fire District No. 1 Battalion Chief arrived at the address and advised that the mobile home was "well involved" on arrival at 8:55 a.m..

A source familiar with the incident tells me there were three people inside the home when the fire broke out. Two were able to escape on their own and a third person was rescued from the home by firefighters, she is said to be in her 60's. The two other victims are reported to be a male in his 30's and a female in her 40's. All three victims were transported to an area hospital by Johnson County Med-Act and none of their injuries are said to be life threatening or involve any burns. Initial radio traffic indicated that one of the subjects possibly attempted to reenter the home to attempt to rescue a pet from inside.

The fire also spread to a neighboring mobile home which was searched and confirmed to be vacant.

The fire in the first trailer was reported to be out as of 9:42 a.m.. The fire in the second trailer was reported to be under control as of 9:45 a.m.. Incident Command requested 2 additional fire apparatus to the scene at 9:55 a.m..

Investigators say it appears the fire started on a deck of the occupied trailer. A damage estimate is not currently available.
