KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City firefighters battled a three-alarm fire Wednesday at an apartment complex near East 30th Street and Indiana Avenue.

It was not immediately clear what caused the building to go up in flames, but fire officials said thankfully no one was injured.

This is the same building that was destroyed earlier this month after an electrical fire. Since then, it's sat boarded up and unlivable.

"We had fire that was going all the way from the basement up to the roof," fire chief Floyd Peoples said. "So, it was a pretty substantial fire. It took them quite a lot of effort to get under control. But, as you can see they're in the final stages of tearing apart the areas where the fire would be contained to finish out the extinguishment."
