Fire that killed 2 in Springfield not considered suspicious
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - Springfield fire officials said the cause of a fire that killed two people this week has not been determined.
The two victims were found dead in the home Monday but their names have not been released.
The Springfield News-Leader reported fire department spokeswoman Cara Erwin said autopsies indicated the two died of smoke inhalation.
Erwin said nothing has been ruled out but the fire is not considered suspicious.
Firefighters couldn't enter the home Monday morning because damage to the structure made it unsafe. The bodies were found when heavy machinery sifted through the remnants of the house.
