Flames engulf home just north of Interstate 35

KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Flames engulfed a KCK home and the smoke slowed traffic on nearby Interstate 35.

Chopper5 was over the scene about 5:15 p.m. Monday as smoke poured from the two-story home, which is located at 2714 Vista Ave.

The fire started in the attic.

A man and woman were home when the fire started in the attic. The man told firefighters he was taking a shower when he heard unusual sounds from his attic fan. He called 911 when he saw smoke pouring from it.

Paramedics checked out the man and woman, but they did not need to go to the hospital, said KCK Assistant Fire Chief Craig Duke.

Firefighters had trouble getting the blaze under control because they had to fight their way into the attic where the flames were, Duke said.
