Dodge City IDs fire victims

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Dodge City authorities have identified a woman and child killed in a house fire earlier this week.

Dodge City officials say 51-year-old Luz Maria Conejo and 2-year-old Pablo Antonio Coca-Conejo died of smoke inhalation in the fire Thursday.

The Dodge City Globe reports (http://bit.ly/Yvz07Q) that Fire Chief Kevin Norton says the cause of the blaze is under investigation but authorities have determined the fire likely started in the living room of the single-story residence.

The deaths have been ruled as accidental.

Norton says the house didn't have any smoke alarms.
