KANSAS CITY, Mo. — No injuries were reported in an early morning Lee's Summit house fire, but officials are also investigating a small marijuana grow operation.
Emergency crews were called to the 1500 block of NE Ivory Lane just before 4:30 a.m.
Firefighters reported heavy smoke on arrival, and quickly determined the basement fire significantly weakened the floor above.
Crews then attacked the fire from a defensive position outside.
After the fire was extinguished just before 6 a.m., officials discovered a small marijuana grow operation in the basement near where it's believed the fire originated.
A second marijuana grow operation was also discovered upstairs in the home.
The Lee's Summit Special Investigation Unit is conducting a follow-up investigation.
