K.T.A. Hardee's Fire
About 6:15 pm Saturday, April 6th 2002 Wellington Fire Department received the report of a grease fire at the Hardee's Restaurant on the Kansas Turnpike. The first unit on the scene, Engine #3, reported heavy smoke coming from the structure. Mutual Aid assistance was then called for from Mulvane Fire Department. Tankers were also Mutual Aided from Sumner County Dist. #9 in Belle Plaine and from Caldwell Fire Department.
Mulvane E-408 pumps on the West side of the complex as T-412 & T-406 shuttle water to two dump tanks. Water Shuttle hydrant was 10 miles away in Wellington.
Firefighters from Mulvane make an attack on the West side as a KTA Trooper looks on.
Wellington Engine 3 tries to make a stop on the East side before the fire reaches the Belle Plaine Tourist Information Center, which was just added in 1998.
Mulvane Firefighters John Benson and Steve Kohr man a hand line in an attempt to save the south half of this structure.
