Fire officials in suburban Kansas City who responded to a condominium kitchen fire say a woman and her dog were found dead inside the unit.

The fire occurred Tuesday afternoon, when Overland Park fire crews responded to a call around 3:20 p.m. of a fire along Outlook Drive. Overland Park Fire spokesman Jason Rhodes says arriving fighters found smoke coming from a two-story condo and quickly put out the kitchen fire.

The woman was found dead in the front room of the home. Officials identified her as Julie Ann Peterson, 51. Rhodes said it was unclear if the fire started from cooking or an electrical problem with the stove.
