A 75-year-old woman who died Wednesday in a house fire in Kansas City, North, has been identified as Ida McKibben.
Ryan Cummings, an off-duty firefighter who lives nearby, rushed inside the house in the 10600 block of North Marsh Avenue and found McKibben on the kitchen floor. He pulled her outside and his wife, a registered nurse, started resuscitation efforts.
McKibben was taken to a hospital but later died.
Fire investigators said unattended food caused the fire. The fire started in the kitchen and spread smoke throughout the home.
Neighbors said McKibben lived in the home with her daughter, who was out of town.
