Olathe firefighters have rescued a woman from inside her burning home.

Firefighters were called to the address in the 2000 block of E. Mohawk Drive shortly before 7 a.m..

Initial reports indicated that two people were trapped inside.

Olathe Fire Department Captain Mike Hall says one woman was rescued from the home by firefighters. A man and the family dog were both able to get out on their own.

Both residents are said to have very minor injuries.

Crews battled heavy fire and requested a second alarm response, as the fire spread into the attic of the two story home. A Battalion Chief at the scene reports that ammunition stored inside the home was firing off due to the heat of the fire.

A total of three Johnson County Med-Act ambulances were called to the scene.

Firefighters from the Overland Park fire department are also on the scene assisting.

A neighbor tells Operation 100 News that Johnson County Med-Act is at the home frequently for various different reasons.

The Red Cross has been called to assist the three adults who were displaced by the fire.

Check back with this report for updates.
