An early morn­ing fire heav­ily dam­aged a twos­tory home in Over­land Park, the fire depart­ment said in a re­lease.

Fire­fight­ers re­sponded to the blaze shortly be­fore 1:30 a.m. in the 8900 block of Conser Street.

The first units on the scene re­ported heavy fire com­ing through the roof of the home. The res­i­dent had es­caped safely and was not in­jured, a fire of­fi­cial said.

Fire­fight­ers made an ag­gres­sive in­te­rior at­tack on the fire and were able to knock down a heavy vol­ume of fire.

The fire, how­ever, burned through the ma­jor­ity of the home’s roof, fire of­fi­cials said.

Fire­fight­ers also had to ex­tin­guish pock­ets of fire that were in dif­fi­cult to reach ar­eas of the at­tic. Ad­di­tional fire en­gines were called to help.

Fire­fight­ers brought the blaze un­der con­trol in just over an hour.

The home sus­tained sig­nif­i­cant dam­age from the fire and is un­in­hab­it­able, a fire of­fi­cial said.

The cause of the fire is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
