  • Vigil held for three found dead in KCK house fire

    Dozens attended a candlelight vigil Tuesday night to remember three people whose bodies were recovered from a house fire in northeast Kansas City, Kan., earlier in the day. Police did not identify the victims but family members of 53-year-old Gwinn Green said they believed she was one of them. Firefighters arrived at the house at Troup Avenue and North Mill Street around 3:20 a.m. to find it fully engulfed in flames. Police are investigating the deaths as potential homicides.
