OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Fire crews worked a large structure fire Friday at an apartment complex in Overland Park.
The fire was reported just before 4 p.m. near W. 80th Street and Farley Street at the Highlands Apartments.
Officials said one person was initially trapped inside but rescued when firefighters arrived on scene.
The fire was already in the attic when crews arrived, so they had to fight it from the outside.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. The estimated amount of damage is unknown at this time but the building is likely a total loss, officials said.
Fire officials tells FOX4 people in seven apartments are now displaced, but fire officials said the Red Cross will assist if needed or the apartment complex hopes to help the residents with other housing options.
