KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a 16-year-old girl who was unable to escape a fire at her family’s home just outside Kearney in Buffalo County.

Kearney and Amherst firefighters responded to the blaze shortly after it broke out late Tuesday night. Authorities say three other family members escaped, but not the girl.

Buffalo County Attorney Shawn Eatherton (EH’-thur-tuhn) identified the girl as Kyah (KYE’-uh) Kinkade.

An autopsy has been ordered.

The fire cause is being investigated.
