Inferno guts apartment building, burns 12 homes in Overland Park

At least 12 homes caught fire as embers from a burning apartment complex construction site landed in an Overland Park neighborhood Monday. Firefighters evacuated several people from their homes as a precaution.

There have been no reports of injuries although not everyone has been accounted for.

Neighboring fire departments helped the Overland Park Fire Department battle the blazes.

"It sounded like a bomb", said Juan Roque.

Jason Rhodes, Overland Park Fire Department, described the area as "a bit of a warzone", saying he hadn't seen a fire of this size in his 10 years with the department.

Oil prices plummet amidst increasing U.S. drilling activity and steady OPEC supply
Exports of refined oil products in January rose slightly to 1.154 million bpd from 1.136 million bpd the month before. Concerns that the OPEC production cut was failing to reduce the global supply overhang kept a lid on the market.

"Nothing of this magnitude", he said.

"They're breaking out quickly", Rhodes said. The sirens startled his daughter, so they left the home before the fire spread there. "It's a very active situation".

"(It's a) rapidly-growing fire, probably a lot of fuel in there with all the construction material and whatnot", Rhodes said at a news conference.

"The wind is not helping us", he added.

We are extremely grateful to all of the fire departments who answered the call, and for their heroic efforts. "Our thoughts and prayers remain with those who are affected and will continue to be affected by this event".
