ATCHISON, Kansas (AP) — A 75-year-old woman has died in a house fire in northeast Kansas.
The fire broke out early Thursday in the two-story home in Atchison. Police Chief Mike Wilson identified the victim as Sharon D. Ferris.
Fire Chief Mike McDermed says the fire appears to have started in a bedroom, and that firefighters found the victim on the second floor of the home. He says it appears she wasn’t able to get out of the home.
Fire crews extinguished the flames quickly, containing most of the fire to one of the bedrooms.
