VIDEO: One person sent to an area hospital following a morning house fire

Posted: July 23, 2013 - 6:01am
Updated: July 23, 2013 - 9:01am

Overland Park fire crews are investigating what sparked a kitchen fire this morning.

The fire was reported just before 5:40 Tuesday morning at 10212 Melrose Drive. A resident reported a fire in the kitchen.

First fire crews arrived on the scene at 5:43 a.m. to report "light smoke showing."

Crews made their way inside the split level home and confirmed what the resident had reported, a working fire in the kitchen.


The resident of the home was outside the structure when firefighters arrived. A man in his 30's was transported to an area hospital by Johnson County Med-Act. He is said to have symptoms of smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide exposure.

While conducting routine searches of the home, firefighters located and rescued the family dog from the home. The dog was not injured and was found hiding in a bedroom.

The fire was reported under control at 5:53, and was reported to be out at 6:00.

Firefighters believe the man was cooking on the stove, when he left something unattended. Smoke alarms alerted the man to the fire. Fire officials describe his injuries as minor. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Investigators say fire damage is contained to the kitchen, with smoke damage throughout the house.

Operation 100 News broke this story to the public at 5:41 a.m. (tweet below). No reports from any other Kansas City area news media until after 6:30 a.m., more than 30 minutes after firefighters had extinguished the fire and began to leave the scene. One media outlet even reported "firefighters arrived to find flames visible," this was simply untrue according the fire department.

At 4:06 a.m. Palmyra Township fire was dispatched to respond on house fire at 358 E. 2073 Road. 
The address is about three miles northeast of Baldwin City.
Initial reports indicate that the resident returned home to find his residence on fire and called 911.

A Kansas Highway Patrol helicopter advised dispatchers that the structure was fully engulfed, just one minute after firefighters were dispatched. The highway patrol's helicopter had been in Johnson County assisting in the search for a man who ran from a stolen vehicle on Interstate 35 near the Gardner-Edgerton area. 

The helicopter pilot told dispatchers that his earlier area search was about nine miles to the east and they could see the 'glow' starting around 4 a.m.. When the helicopter was available from their search, they went to investigate the glow and learned that the fire had already been reported to Douglas County authorities.
Fire crews arrived within five minutes to confirm that the home was fully engulfed and crews would be using a defensive attack to keep it from spreading.
Palmyra Township fire requested a county-wide tender (water tanker) response and assistance from several township fire departments, Baldwin City fire and Wellsville Fire from Franklin County.
No injuries have been reported.
