WESTPORT BURNS TONIGHT!!!



Early note on a blaze impacting a historic Kansas City building in Westport that might not survive this Winter . . . The structure has been there for generations and is way more significant than merely a place behind a burger joint. But for now this report will have to suffice . . .

Making room for more condos. Glad nobody was hurt but that is going to be PRIME real estate very soon.

Spontaneous urban renewal and real estate fire sale. . I wonder which developer had it torched so they can get the lot at a bargain basement price.

Sad to see the building go but I guess we are spared from months and months of protesting and Internet campaigns to "save" it from the owners who want to sell and make a quick buck.

We love you Westport!

Interesting to know if criminal gun selling KCFD captian was promoting his wares or directing the troops.
Tough job watching a fire in this weather.

At least it was fully insured!
Probably at the amount it was worth when it used to be fully occupied (plus a little extra).

Sounds like a friction fire...

caused by the tax bill rubbing against the mortgage.
