Hutchinson Fire Crews Work Residential Fire Tuesday Evening that Temporarily Closed N. Plum St.

HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Tuesday evening, the Hutchinson Fire Department responded to the 10,000 block of N. Plum St for a report of a structure fire. First arriving units reported a single-story home at 10,006 N. Plum with heavy smoke showing from the rear.

Occupants on the scene informed crews of a fire in the kitchen and multiple pets unaccounted for. After discovering that the fire had extended to the attic space, crews made an aggressive interior attached and were able to stop the spread of the entire attic space. A search accounted for all pets, but unfortunately, none survived.

Due to the rural operations and the necessity of bringing in water, Plum St. was closed to all traffic from 95th to 108th for a period of time.
