OLATHE, Kan. — Olathe Fire Department says four people were sent to hospital and in stable condition after a house fire Saturday morning.
The call came in around 8:15 a.m. at 1030 North Clinton Street.
When firefighters arrived, they were met with significant fire conditions, which required a “second alarm.” A second alarm simply provides more resources like fire trucks and firefighters to an incident.
The fire department says It took the firefighters about two hours to control the fire.
The department says two adults and a teenager exit the house on their own. However, firefighters rescued one adult from a window in the house’s garage.
All victims were transported to a nearby hospital in stable condition after suffering smoke inhalation. One person is suffering from minor burns.
According to the department, the fire was spread by the objects inside the house.
