KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A building fire in the area of Admiral Boulevard and Virginia Avenue sent black smoke billowing into the air Tuesday afternoon, blanketing an area north of the downtown Kansas City loop.
The Kansas City Fire Department arrived at the scene just before 12:15 p.m., and attacked the fire defensively according to a spokesperson. They’re also using ladder trucks to try and extinguish the fire.
KCFD tells FOX4 the building was originally a fire station that was first in service in 1908. It was decommissioned in 1932 and has been used for various things since and was currently vacant.
So far there have been no injuries reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
