Fire heavily damages a Lee's Summit home

Fire heavily damages a Lee's Summit home

December 26, 2013
6:12 a.m.

Jim Eden
Assistant Fire Chief

On Thursday, December 26, 2013, at 2:15 a.m. the Lee’s Summit Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire at 100 NE Forest Avenue. The resident advised that the second floor of his house was on fire.

When the fire department arrived, heavy smoke and fire was coming from the second floor and roof of the large two-story, single family residence. The only occupant of the house was outside.

Firefighters initially entered the house to attack the fire and confirm no one else was in the building. As conditions worsened, crews were removed from inside the house and firefighting operations were switched to a defensive mode from outside the building. The fire was under control at 3:13 a.m.

The fire heavily damaged the second floor and collapsed the roof. The structure is no longer safe to enter.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
