Mission A fire in a large apartment building in the Kansas City suburb of Mission has claimed two lives.
The Kansas City Star reported that a man and a woman were found dead early Sunday in a bedroom. They were not immediately identified.
Chief Phil Hodgdon, of Consolidated Fire District No. 2 in Johnson County, said the fire was reported at 4 a.m. at The Falls, a 400-unit building. He said flames burned six apartments and other units suffered smoke damage.
Two other people were sent to a hospital — a resident who suffered smoke inhalation and a firefighter who had heat exhaustion.
