KANSAS CITY (AP) — Two men are dead after a fire destroyed a home in Kansas City.

The fire was reported about 3 a.m. Friday in the Historic Northeast district of the city. Flames were coming out of the home's windows by the time firefighters arrived.

Both victims were found inside the home. A third man had escaped by crawling out of a second-floor window and climbing down a tree. He was uninjured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Names of the victims have not been released.
