Firefighters from Lenexa and Overland Park extinguished an apartment fire this afternoon.

Crews were called to the London House Apartments in the 9800 block of Buckingham Road, around 2:15 Friday afternoon. The apartment complex is just south of 95th Street, on the east side of Interstate 35.

A resident ran to the apartment complex clubhouse and reported a fire in the kitchen of his apartment.

Firefighters arrived about three minutes later to find visible smoke and fire through one window of the building. Crews reported heavy smoke from the floor to the ceiling of the second floor apartment, where the fire is believed to have originated.

The fire spread into the building's walls and to the third floor. The entire building is said to have smoke damage, from the basement to the third level.

Police and fire crews knocked on apartment doors to confirm that all residents of the building were aware of the fire and had made it outside.

Several cats and dogs were rescued from the building by firefighters.

The fire was reported to be under control at 3:33 p.m..

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