Crews battle structure fire in KCMO in midst of water main break and out of service hydrants

Minor flooding reported in the area

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Crews battling a structure fire in Kansas City were challenged Thursday night because nearby fire hydrants are not working.

Just after 10:30 p.m., authorities were called to the intersection of Truman Road and Spruce Avenue on reports of heavy smoke at a nail salon. By 10:50, the building was completely engulfed in flames.

In addition to the out of service hydrants, a water main break was causing minor flooding in the area. Officials said the water main break did not impact the fighting of the fire.

Police blocked off both directions of Truman Road due to the large volume of fire trucks and questions about the structural integrity of the road after the break.

No injuries were reported.
