JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) — A woman and her grandson were killed and two others injured in a house fire in suburban St. Louis, police there said.

Annie Simms, 86, and Michael Simms, 39, died in the Sunday afternoon fire in Jennings, St. Louis County police said Monday.

Another man and woman were able to escape, police said, but the woman broke a leg when she jumped from a second-floor window.

The fire was started by a cigarette, police said, and the St. Louis Regional Bomb and Arson Unit determined it was accidental.

Jennings is about 7 miles north of St. Louis.
