Early Morning Fire in Kenney

Kenney Fire Department was notified at 2:08 am Thursday of a first alarm structure fire on S. Fuller Street. A second alarm was immediately requested for additional manpower and water.


Upon arrival, crews found a 2 story residence with heavy fire blowing out the 2nd story and part of the ground level. A deck gun was deployed to help contain the fire and then an interior attack commenced along with primary search. During the primary search, a dog was found and rescued from the house. DeWitt County EMS administered Oxygen to the animal and it seems to be doing very well. Interior crews found the stairs and part of the 2nd story floor to be gone with the remaining floor to be heavily compromised. Entry was made in a 2nd story window and the fire was brought under control at 2:35 am.  Fire extension into the attic made hotspots difficult to extinguish, which were contained by 5 am.


Clinton, Maroa, Wapella, Waynesville, Warrensburg, and Chestnut Fire Departments assisted with the call.
