Scene photos: Douglas County home heavily damaged by fire
Firefighters from at least three area departments were called to respond on a report of a structure fire in Eudora.
The call was dispatched around 11:40 p.m. at 2218 Quail Court. The address is on the south side of Kansas Highway 10, just east of Eudora High School.
Law Enforcement arrived on the scene to report the east side of the structure was heavily involved in fire. Fire crews arrived to report heavy flames visible from the south and east sides of the two story home.
The residents of the home told emergency crews that everyone was out of the home safely.
As of 12:10 a.m., firefighters report the roof of the home is nearly fully engulfed. Crews remain inside the home battling the flames from the second story.
Just before 1 a.m., a Fire Safety Officer reported a partial roof collapse. Incident command made radio contact with each firefighter team on the inside of the structure. All crews were clear of the collapse area and continue to put water on the fire.
The fire was reported to be "under control" at 1:07 a.m.. Dispatchers report that crews were on scene for one hour 20 minutes before the fire was brought under control.
Neighbors on one side of the home were evacuated as a precaution. No injuries were reported.
Firefighters from the City of Eudora, Eudora Township Fire and Wakarusa Township Fire are all on the scene.
