Kansas City firefighters find body in burning home
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Investigators are trying to find the cause of a fatal fire in a Kansas City house that is believed to have been vacant.
Fire Department spokesman Joe Vitale said firefighters found a body in a hallway off a bedroom of the one-story house as they battled the fire first reported shortly after 4:30 a.m. Monday. He said the body was under debris that fell when the roof collapsed.
Vitale said the house was not equipped with utilities.
He said firefighters' efforts were hampered by the intensity of the fire and heavy winds.
The victim's age and gender were not immediately known.
The fire department investigators' unit and the police bomb and arson unit are investigating.
