A residential fire at 2915 Roosevelt St. resulted in a $30,000 loss, according to the Kansas City, Kan., Fire Department.
Firefighters responded to the fire at 10:13 p.m. Jan. 25 at the single-family home.
A Fire Department spokesman said crews arrived within 2 minutes and saw heavy smoke coming from the one-story wood-framed structure.
All occupants had already left the building. The firefighters located the fire in the basement. It had extended to the first floor and attic area, the spokesman said.
The floor in the building was unstable because of the intense fire in the basement, the spokesman said.
Crews had to evacuate the structure to fight the fire in a defensive mode from outside, according to the spokesman.
The estimated damage to the building and contents was $30,000. The fire is under investigation, the spokesman said.
The home did not have smoke detectors, according to the Fire Department.
The Red Cross was called to assist two adults and three children.
