As a fast-moving fire consumed an apartment building in Overland Park, Kan., Wednesday morning, residents pounded on doors to get everyone out safely. The fire started around 2 a.m. and destroyed eight units at the Aspen Lodge Apartments at 10220 West 81st Terrace. “I woke up to someone banging on my windows and doors,” said Micah Dee, who is hearing impaired. “They told me they banged on my windows for a long time. Eventually I woke up so I have them to thank for that.” Dee lives on the first floor, and he grabbed his hearing aid and phone before running outside.
