A home near 30th and Marsh caught fire around 4:40 a.m. Wednesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a house fire at 30th and Marsh early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters say no one was home at the time of the fire around 4:40 a.m., but it did impact nearby roads for a time – since water from the fire somehow spilled onto a couple of ramps near 40-Highway near I-435 and I-70.

Kansas City Scout says a couple of cars slid off the road, and salt crews were called to the scene to treat the ramps.

As of 8 a.m. the ramps were open.
