2 dead in Kansas City-area house fire
GRANDVIEW (AP) - Fire officials say an adult and an infant died in a fire in a Kansas City suburb.
The fire was reported early Monday at a home in Grandview.
Grandview Fire Chief Chuck Thacker says an adult's body was found in the home's basement. The infant was taken to a hospital and later died.
KSHB-TV reports another person was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
Thacker said two children escaped through a bedroom window and ran to a neighbor's home to alert emergency workers.
