Firefighters were called to an address in the 10700 block of W 90th Terrace around 3:10 a.m. after a caller reported that the other half of her duplex was on fire. Overland Park Police arrived on scene to report that half of the duplex was "fully engulfed". An approaching fire crew reported seeing heavy fire from half a block away.

The caller to 911 reported that they were unsure if anyone was home in the side of the duplex that was on fire. Police say that a neighbor told them the resident's vehicle is not parked at the address.

Crews quickly pulled attack lines and began working on knocking the fire down. Another fire crew entered the neighboring side of the duplex to check for possible extension.

The fire was reported to be under control at 3:53 a.m.. Crews inside the duplex also reported a weak floor and a hole in the floor on the second level of the fire duplex. The neighboring duplex was checked and confirmed to be all clear of fire.

Police confirm to Operation 100 News that Officers have contacted the resident of the duplex that is on fire and report that no one was home this morning.

The Overland Park Fire Department is being assisted by one crew from the Lenexa Fire Department and Johnson County Med-Act.

No injuries have been reported.
