Lawrence firefighters are on the scene of a house fire in the 1400 block of Kentucky Street.

The call was dispatched at 4:15 a.m. after dispatchers received a 911 call reporting the front porch of the home was on fire. A second 911 caller reported the entire front of the home was on fire.

Residents of the home, said to be three college students, were alerted by a passerby that their front porch was on fire.

Arriving fire crews reported fire visible on the front of the three story structure. Interior crews found that the fire had spread into a third floor wall and to the attic space.

All residents of the home were able to get out before emergency crews arrived.

The incident commander requested a second alarm to the scene for additional firefighters and equipment at 4:20 a.m..

An additional aerial apparatus was dispatched to the scene shortly after 5 a.m. as crews on the scene backed out of the structure to put water on the fire from the outside only.

Firefighters went back into the structure around 6:30 a.m. to continue hitting hot spots.

No injuries have been reported.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical has also requested an emergency callback for off-duty personnel to fill several Lawrence fire stations and reserve apparatus.
