Olathe firefighters worked an early morning house fire in the 900 block of E. 126th Terrace. The address is just north of E. Harold Street, which is E. 127th Street, and just east of N. Nelson Road.

Police and fire crews were dispatched at 4:12 a.m., Wednesday, after a 9-1-1 caller reported a fire in  the home's garage.

Olathe Police officers arrived to report that the three residents of the home had made it safely to the front yard. A resident told officers several propane tanks are stored inside the garage.
