Firefighters from three area departments were called to respond on a house fire in western Shawnee just before noon Thursday.

A 911 caller reported a house fire at 22520 W. 75th Street, located at 75th Street and McCoy Street or about one-quarter of a mile east of K-7.




Shawnee firefighters reported "flames rolling" out of the home and immediately requested a second-alarm response. Most of that response was canceled prior to arriving on the scene.

Operation 100 News was on the scene as firefighters finished putting the fire out.

Fire crews from the Lenexa Fire Department and Olathe Fire Department also responded on the call.

Two cats were reported to be inside the house when the fire broke out. Firefighters reported locating but, being unable to catch both of those cats in the house.

Shawnee Fire officials say the fire is believed to have started in the garage and spread rapidly. The cause of the fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported.
