Downtown Overland Park, KS is burning down. I saw helicopters circling the area (about 1 mile from my house). It’s a downtown that has been pulling out of a long slump and becoming quite the busy shopping district.
They just announced – a huge Art Gallery fire. No injuries. They haven’t realised yet that there is a paint store right there.
UPDATE: They think it’s contained to the Gallery. But, it’s still burning this is so strange to see all the film from the helicopters and smoke and this is the neighborhood I walk through when I do my outdoor walk.
(cough) Oh, and this really is an OPEN THREAD
Edited to add: I Love Man Eegee, more! I was going to post a joke or something to lighten things up. But it’ll have to wait until the fire goes out. I’m still kind of nervous.
