Investigators say the residents used a chiminea fire pit on their deck last night. The ashes from the fire pit were discarded near the house. An occupant awoke to find a fire on the side of the house which was spreading to the roof and attic. All occupants of the house were able to safely evacuate. Damage is estimated at $25,000.

Even with Olathe under a burn ban, the use of fire pits is not included in the ban. More information about Olathe's Burn Ban can be found here.
