Early Morning Under-Construction Residential Blaze Sends Kansas Firefighters Into Quick Action

On Thursday, March 11, 2004, firefighters responded to an early morning fire at a building under construction in Olathe, Kansas.

Fire walls and the quick work of firefighters, from four area departments using eight fire trucks, stopped the fire from spreading throughout the unoccupied building.

The four story building suffered significant damage and will provide 144 homes to older adults once construction and renovation is complete.
