Victims of fatal fires identified

Two people died in Kansas City fires in two days. Today, the victims have been identified.

Just after noon on March 14, Kansas City firefighters responded to an apartment fire at 4020 Mill St. The woman who died in that incident has been identified as 86-year-old Consuela Rangel.

Then about 3 a.m. March 15, the KCFD responded to a home at 2859 Oakley St., where they found 10-month-old Deanna Lockhart dead inside.

Please make sure your home has working smoke dectectors, and change the batteries in those detectors every six months.
