The Goodland Fire Department responded to a fire at the building on the southeast corner of Main and 17th Street on Saturday. The building was being used for off-campus housing for 10 Northwest Kansas Technical College soccer team members. No one was injured in the fire. The students had been out of the building preparing for a soccer game that afternoon. The college was coordinating efforts to help the students, who lost most of their possessions. The community stepped up by donating clothing and other items that the students needed until they were allowed back in the building to salvage what they could. The building also houses the Basement Bar and Grill and Hair by Sara. Firefighters also responded to a grass fire out in the county around the same time Saturday afternoon, shortly before another storm passed through the area.
