A fire in southern Lawrence on Thanksgiving morning heavily damaged a house.

Sometime after 9 a.m. Thursday, neighbors said, a house at 2901 Atchison Circle caught fire. Firefighters responded just before 9:30 a.m. to the fire at the single-family, two-story residence. The fire appeared to have started in the garage, which was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, Lawrence Fire Chief Mark Bradford said.

Two people were in the house, Bradford said, but they got out safely, and no one was injured.

However, the property damage appeared to be "a total loss," Bradford said.

The fire was under control by about 10 a.m., and an investigation into the cause was underway.

http://www2.ljworld.com/users/photos/... I'm glad no one was hurt family or firefighters. The fire was pretty intense early on. Lucky the Lawrence fire department got here quickly after the Lawrence police arrived.

How despicable is that? Someone loses their home, on a holiday, and somehow that is funny?? Just terrible. That comment has been flagged for removal. I can't believe the LJWORLD hasn't already removed it.

I think the JW tries to confirm the users that sign on, but with all the "russian troll" activity lately, one has to wonder Whatever inspires people to post stupid comments that seem designed only to offend? It's been a feature of the internet since day one, it seems, or at least since anonymity was assured
