Massive fire in Overland Park spreads rapidly to homes destroys everything in path

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.

"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".
