Firefighters from Overland Park and Lenexa responded on a house fire near 90th and Conser Drive just after 1:20 a.m. Sunday.

Overland Park Police were first on the scene and reported heavy fire from the roof of the home at 8950 Conser Drive. The resident of the home was able to evacuate from the house safely.

“Firefighters began an aggressive interior attack, knocking down a heavy volume of fire, which had burned through the majority of the home’s roof,” OPFD Media Manager Jason Rhodes said in a news release. “Crews had to dig out extensive pockets of fire in difficult to reach portions of the attic.”

The fire was brought under control about an hour after firefighters arrived on the scene.

“The home suffered significant fire damage and will be uninhabitable,” Rhodes said in the release.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

A Shawnee Fire Department crew filled in at an Overland Park Fire Station as those crews worked to bring the fire under control.
