WARREN, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 17-year-old girl has died in a house fire north of Detroit.

Fire officials say she was trapped in the basement of the Warren home on Monday afternoon as the fire spread through the attached garage and into the house. The fire appears to have started in the garage, where food was being cooked on a grill.

Authorities say several other people in the one-story home managed to escape, but a woman was taken to a hospital and treated for undisclosed injuries.
