(The after picture and the following text are from a Raytown Fire Department press release)

KCFD dispatch received a call for a reported structure fire at the residence. The reason KCFD received the 911 call instead of the Raytown dispatch center is still being investigated and may be related to the 911 call being made from a cell phone. KCFD dispatched according to the automatic aid agreement that both departments entered into two years ago. This means citizens benefit from having the closest fire truck responding regardless of which department’s name is on the door. KCFD pumper 43 arrived at the scene first to find smoke and flames emanating from the garage. Three occupants had safely exited the structure and were found at their predetermined meeting place in the front yard. Both Raytown and KCFD crews utilized two 1¾” attack lines to bring the fire under control, and managed to rescue the family dog from the structure unharmed.
