Shawnee Fire Chief John Mattox takes questions from reporters outside the apartment building where an early-morning fire killed two residents. Food left on the stove caused the fire, which started about 5:30 a.m. Friday at the Carlyle Apartment Homes, 11601 W. 75th Terrace, and accounted for Shawnee’s first citizen fatalities from a fire in more than 10 years, Mattox said.
