Building Fire & Ammonia Leak

A fire and an ammonia leak on the same street keep firefighters busy for much of the night.

Crews responded to 22nd & Locust around 1:30 this morning for a building fire.

Flames and heavy smoke were pouring from the roof upon arrival.

Despite the size and heat of the fire, it did not spread to the adjacent buildings.

Hours earlier firefighters and the hazmat team were called to FleetCare near 21st and Locust for an anhydrous ammonia leak.

Crews were able to turn off a valve on a truck outside the building.

There is still no cause on the fire or if these two incidents are related.
