KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A barn in Kansas City, Kan., with chemicals, vehicles and ammunition inside, caught on fire Friday morning.

The fire department responded to the barn in the 1800 block of Alma at about 11:10 a.m. That's near South 18th Street Expressway and Merriam Lane. Thirty-one firefighters responded with 14 fire equipment units.

There were also propane tanks on the scene. Firefighters say under these conditions, when there is ammunition 'popping' and other explosives they douse the fire with as much water as possible but keep a distance.

No injuries were reported.
