Residents evacuated after Plaza high-rise apartment fire

Posted: Updated:
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Residents of a high-rise apartment building on the Country Club Plaza were evacuated on Sunday afternoon. 

Crews were called about 2:30 p.m. Sunday to the Icon On The Plaza Apartments, located at West 46th and Jefferson streets.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, smoke could be seen coming from the eighth floor, but they got inside the apartment and extinguished the fire quickly. 

The battalion chief said that his crews didn't even need to hook up their hoses, which was good news because someone had parked a car in front of the nearest hydrant.

The vehicle was towed away.

One owner put his cat "Muffin" on a leash while fleeing the apartments.

No one was hurt.
