Olathe firefighters have rescued a woman from inside her burning home.

Firefighters were called to the address in the 2000 block of E. Mohawk Drive shortly before 7 a.m..

Initial reports indicated that two people were trapped inside.

Olathe Fire Department Captain Mike Hall says one woman was rescued from the home by firefighters. A man and the family dog were both able to get out on their own.

Both residents are said to have very minor injuries.

Crews battled heavy fire and requested a second alarm response, as the fire spread into the attic of the two story home. A Battalion Chief at the scene reports that ammunition stored inside the home was firing off due to the heat of the fire.

A total of three Johnson County Med-Act ambulances were called to the scene.

Firefighters from the Overland Park fire department are also on the scene assisting.

A neighbor tells Operation 100 News that Johnson County Med-Act is at the home frequently for various different reasons.

The Red Cross has been called to assist the three adults who were displaced by the fire.

Firefighters from three area departments worked to extinguish a house fire early Saturday.

Emergency crews were called to the home in the 5500 block of Roundtree Street around 12:50 a.m.

Police were first on the scene and reported heavy fire from the garage of the home.

The residents of the home, two adults and a child, were able to escape the burning home uninjured.

Fire crews knocked down most of the fire from the outside, before making their way inside to check for and extinguish additional fire.

The fire was reported under control around 1:10 a.m. and out at 1:40 a.m..

Shawnee fire marshal Corey Sands says the resident had recently stained the home's deck and placed the oil soaked rags in the trash can in the garage. The fire was caused by spontaneous combustion of those oily rags.

Firefighters from the Lenexa Fire Department and Olathe Fire Department assisted on the initial call.

Firefighters returned to extinguish hot spots around 9 a.m..

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a man who stopped to help a stalled motorist, is now in critical condition after being struck on Kansas Highway 10.

The accident occurred in the westbound lanes of K-10 just west of K-7 in Olathe around 8:30 p.m..

Johnson County Med-Act transported the man to an area hospital with critical injuries.

Troopers say the injured man was driving westbound on the highway when he found a car stalled in the right lane of the highway. The man decided to help and parked his car on the right shoulder.

As the man was trying to assist the stalled driver, a third vehicle struck the man and the stalled vehicle.

The westbound lanes remained closed until around 12:30 a.m. Saturday as the Kansas Highway Patrol's Critical Highway Accident Response Team worked to map the incident scene.

Olathe Police say approximately 45 vehicles were damaged by vandals sometime overnight in Olathe.

Four of those vehicles were damaged in front of Tara Polca's home. She said both of her neighbor's have damaged vehicles as well.

Before 7 a.m. Friday, damaged vehicles could be seen on both sides of each street hit. Some of the damaged vehicles were parked in driveways, only feet from windows on the homes.

Police say they have not heard of any damage to homes.

The damage was first reported around 4:15 a.m., in the 1200 block of E. Johnston Street when a resident stepped outside to find their vehicle's window shattered and called police. Arriving officers found at least four vehicles on the street with damaged windows.

Deputies say a 68-year-old Lawrence woman died at the scene of a single vehicle accident in rural Douglas County early Friday.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office Lt. Steve Lewis tells my reporting partners at the Lawrence Journal-World, deputies responding on the crash just before 2 a.m. and discovered the woman's body about 30 yards from a wrecked 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass.

The accident occurred in the 600 block of 
U.S. Highway 56, near the unincorporated community of Globe.

Deputies believe the vehicle was traveling westbound at high speed and went into the north ditch for unknown reasons.

The car then struck a pasture driveway and went airborne, about 20 feet in the air, tearing down a power line. The driver was ejected through the passenger window as the car flipped end over end. The woman was the only occupant of the car and was not wearing a seatbelt.



The accident was reported by a passerby who spotted the car crashed off of the highway.
