Update: Several without power after fire in substation in Fort Scott Kansas

Fort Scott Kansas Fire Department was dispatched to Evergy’s substation north of town earlier today for a lightning strike that caused a fire. 

Crews set up a safe area and worked with Evergy to reduce any further emergencies! At this time several areas are without power. 

The city has set up BRCC as an area to cool off and to rest from the heat. Sorry for the late update. Crews have been busy with this call and numerous other calls for service! 

We will update with any information as it comes available.
