Firework Blast Startles Firefighters

Associated Press - March 10, 2015 11:51 am

Firefighters in western Kansas were surprised by a barrage of fireworks as they battled a blaze at a storage unit early Tuesday.

Goodland Police Chief Clifton Couch says it took several hours for crews to contain the fire after they were alerted shortly after midnight.

Residents at a nearby mobile home park were under voluntary evacuation orders and a temporary shelter was set up at a church.

The Kansas Fire Marshal has been called in to investigate.

Firefighters from the city of Goodland and the Sherman County Rural Fire Department were called in to fight the flames.
