Crews from three area fire departments extinguished an apartment fire Tuesday evening in Johnson County.

Firefighters were called shortly after 6:30 p.m. to the Four Winds Apartments, located at 10222 W. 80th Street in Overland Park.

Arriving firefighters reported smoke visible from a first floor of the two story apartment building, which was being evacuated on arrival.

The fire was located in a kitchen and was quickly extinguished by firefighters.

A news release says the resident of the damaged apartment told fire investigators that she was cooking and had a grease fire on the stove. She attempted to put it out with flour and then a fire extinguisher, but the fire was too big. She got out of the apartment and called 911.


No injuries were reported and only one unit was uninhabitable Tuesday night.

Crews from the Lenexa Fire Department and Merriam Fire Department also assisted on the fire.

Overland Park Fire says you should keep a cookie sheet near your stove and in the event of a fire, slide it over the top of the pan that is on fire. This will smother the fire. Do not move the pan or put anything else on the fire. Cover the fire, get out and call 911.

More fire safety information and videos can be found on the city's website, www.opkansas.org.

Mission Police say they checked 335 cars and tested 61 drivers during this morning's DUI check lane. A total of 12 arrests were made, including six for driving under the influence, two for driving while impaired and six for six for drug related offenses.

A news release this morning did not specify how many of those violations resulted in citations or what other violations may have been cited during the check lane.


The check lane was open from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. and included officers from Mission, Merriam, Olathe, Prairie Village, Overland Park, Gardner, Spring Hill, and Lenexa. Deputies from the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and Troopers from the Kansas Highway Patrol also assisted in the operation.

In a statement, Captain David Moloy of the Mission Police Department says, "the effectiveness of sobriety checkpoints lies not only in the fear of being arrested, but also in the number of people who plan in advance to take cabs home after drinking. This has truly made our streets safer by reducing the number of intoxicated drivers on our roadways."

On Friday, March 29th, members of the Olathe Police Department's School Resource Officer Unit conducted alcohol compliance checks throughout the city of Olathe.

The checks focused on businesses that sell alcohol. The purpose of the operation was to insure that these businesses are checking customer's identification and not selling alcohol to under-aged individuals.

Officers checked 59 businesses, 54 of which complied by asking for identification. The five businesses that did not comply were cited for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor and given municipal court dates.

Olathe Police Chief Steven Menke says "This is just a part of the police department's continuing effort to prevent under-aged drinking and insure that businesses that sell alcohol are doing their part to keep our community safe."

A statement release about the checks says that while the high number of compliant businesses is encouraging, it is the continued goal of the Olathe Police Department to attain 100% compliance throughout the city. Police will continue to routinely conduct compliance checks throughout the upcoming year.

Olathe Police also conducted a DUI check lane March 29th. Results of that check lane can be found here.
