AURORA, Mo. (AP) _ A police official says the 6-year-old girl died when a shed caught fire in southwest Missouri.

Aurora Police Lt. Jay Jastal identified the girl as Katherine Goodson, of Peculiar.

The girl's family was visiting her grandparents when a fire started Sunday in a shed shortly after a riding lawnmower was parked inside.

Jastal says investigators believe the mower malfunctioned and the fumes likely caused the fire.

The girl had been riding the mower earlier.
