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