Lenexa Firefighters extinguished a small fire in the attic of an apartment building in the 9500 block of Monrovia Street. Initial reports were of smoke in the area. One fire crew responded to the area with police and found light smoke visible from the roof of one building.

That building was quickly evacuated and a small fire was found in the attic of a second floor apartment. A full alarm response was ordered to assist with evacuations of the building. 

Officials say they pulled ceilings in several apartments to confirm that the fire was completely extinguished.

Firefighters from the Overland Park Fire Department were also called and assisted with the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation and a damage estimate was not immediately available. No injuries were reported.
