KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A 5-year-old girl has died and a firefighter who tried to save her suffered second-degree burns to the face after a house fire in Kansas City, Kan.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1adkkRB) reports the fire was reported just after 4 a.m. Sunday, and when emergency crews arrived they found heavy flames coming from the rear and center sections of the home.

The girl was found in or near a bedroom at the back of the house, which had no smoke detectors. A woman and a 7-year-old girl escaped and were taken to an area hospital for evaluation.

The name of the victim and other occupants weren't released pending notification of relatives. The cause remains under investigation.
