Highview Estates residents asked to evacuate due to spread of fire

Just after 11am emergency crew were called to the area of I-470 Highway and Raytown Road to assist KCFD with traffic in regard to a fire in the area.  The fire is believed to have started as a mulch fire but is quickly spreading due to the winds and dry condition.  Parts of the highway/roads are shut down.

The fire is spreading towards a residential area, Highview Estates, we are asking residents to evacuate for their safety.   Officers are in the area and knocking on doors to let residents know.
