Damage loss from Monday’s fire between $23-$25 million

March 24, 2017

unnamedThe dollar loss from Monday's CityPlace fire is currently estimated to be between $23 to $25 million.

CityPlace's damage is estimated at $20 million; and to the 25 homes, either damaged or destroyed, at $3 to $5 million. Property owners in the neighborhoods have already begun cleanup efforts.

Officials caution that this is an estimate based on exterior damage and property values. A specific dollar loss will be determined at a later date by insurance adjusters.

These figures are to give the public an idea of the scope of loss, with the understanding that they will likely be adjusted later as more damage information is provided.

"We understand and are hearing from those affected by the fire about how to proceed forward. We want to help in that process," said Sean Reilly, communications manager.

The City's priority of field damage assessment has been primarily completed and we are shifting to the restoration phase. City officials have had initial meeting with neighborhood leaders to begin communications. Outreach to those individuals most severely affected by the incident is under way to assist, where the city can, with restoration and recovery.

Overland Park has established a dedicated webpage for the fire and follow-up and updated information.
