KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities in Kansas City, Kan., say a 39-year-old man is suspected of starting a fire at an apartment that killed a woman and a young girl she was babysitting.

KMBC-TV reports that police say the man said he set the fire early Saturday at the Legend Oaks Apartment after getting into a fight with a tenant.

The fire killed 34-year-old Brandi Johnson and 2-year-old Amiyah McClenton. Residents say other tenants escaped after some residents ran through the hallways pounding on doors to alert people to the fire.

The American Red Cross helped 26 people who were displaced by the fire.
