KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police are working to determine what was lost when a fire damaged one of the department’s property and evidence buildings.

The fire was reported at the Kansas City Municipal Services building early Thursday.

Kansas City police spokesman Sgt. Jake Becchina says a few shelves with items were burned and other evidence might have been damaged by smoke and water. The building itself was not damaged.

No one was injured.

The items in the warehouse are recovered property from as long ago as the 1970s.

Becchina says staff is processing the inventory and it will take time to determine how much damage was done.

He says the cause of the fire is unclear but there are no apparent signs of foul play.
