KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Missouri, fire crews are investigating a fire near 55th Street and Woodland Avenue.

Firefighters were called to the home at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday.

No one was inside the home and no injuries have been reported.

This fire is at the same home where a woman died and a 3-year-old boy was injured in another fire on March 31.

That fire is still being investigated by police, according to the KCFD spokesperson.

Firefighters are unsure how this most recent fire started, though its origin seems to be suspicious since the home was boarded up from the previous fire.

Wednesday morning also saw KCFD battling two other fires.

One happened at a gated apartment complex at 1111 West 46th Street.

Crews said that fire started on a deck and no one was injured.

The other fire happened at a duplex near 23rd Street and Indiana Avenue.

Crews at the scene said the duplex had caught fire previously. The Wednesday fire spread to a building next door that was for sale.

No injuries were reported.
