2 Dead, 3 Injured in Shawnee House Fire

SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) — A fire broke out in a Shawnee home, killing two people and injuring three others.  The Kansas City Star reports that the fire was reported early today (THUR) in the Kansas City suburb. The two victims are believed to be a man in his 60s and a child.  Shawnee Fire Marshal Corey Sands says firefighters found the dead man and boy near each other in a hallway.  The injured were taken to the University of Kansas Hospital for treatment.  Sands says investigators had not determined the cause of the fire or whether the home had working smoke detectors. He says clutter in the house made rescue efforts difficult.
