Sunday afternoon fire investigators say an early morning fire caused between $75,000 to $100,000 in damage. Consolidated Fire District No. 2 Battalion Chief Barger says the fire was confined to the basement and believed to have been sparked by something electrical, possibly a home entertainment center.

At 12:24 a.m. Sunday morning, fire crews from Consolidated Fire District Number 2 of Johnson County were dispatched to a Mission Hills home, address of 5720 State Line Road. The 911 caller reported a fire in the basement.

The first fire crew to arrive at 12:27 a.m., reported there was "nothing showing" from the nearly 6,000 square foot home and that all of the occupants were uninjured in the front yard. After further investigation that same crew reported a working fire in the basement of the address.

At 12:45 a.m., Incident Command requested two additional fire apparatus be added to the call and that those units respond emergency.

Interior crews also reported a "soft spot" in the flooring of the first level, above the fire.

The fire was reported under control approximately 50 minutes after first units arrived and then declared to be out just after 2 a.m.. No injuries were reported.

Public records show, as of 2011, the 5,954 square foot home had an appraised value of $2,289,500.
