    2-Year-Old Home Alone Hurt In Fire
    Firefighters: Blaze Intentionally Set

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A 2-year-old girl who was home alone was injured in a house fire on Saturday morning that firefighters said was intentionally set.

    The blaze started on the front porch of the house at East 62nd Street and South Benton Avenue and quickly spread inside, firefighters said.

    A neighbor saw the blaze and called 911.

    When firefighters arrived, smoke had filled the house and flames were shooting from the roof, but that didn't stop them from rushing inside and pulling the young girl from the burning house. They found her in a back bedroom between a bedroom door and a closet.

    Medics performed CPR on the girl, who suffered from smoke inhalation, and took her to a hospital in serious condition.

    It also wasn't clear why the girl was home alone. About an hour after the fire, a 27-year-old woman who police said they believed was her mother showed up at the house, where police talked to her and then took her into custody.

    It appeared as though the girl had been left alone for two and a half hours, police said.

    Firefighters estimated the cost of the damage from the fire at $45,000.
