Bodies Found Inside Burning Home

Firefighters made a grisly discovery inside a burning home.

Crews found the bodies -- a man and a woman -- inside a row home along the 4200 block of Ormand Street in Philadelphia’s Juniata neighborhood late Thursday night.

It only took firefighters a short period of time to put out the blaze and the home didn’t appear from the outside to be heavily damaged. The discovery of the bodies inside, though, made the toll of the fire huge.

No cause of death was given but Philadelphia Police confirmed that they would investigate the deaths as potential homicides.

Firefighters also investigated suspected arson at the scene bringing in specialty sniffing dogs.

As of early Thursday morning, authorities couldn’t confirm much more than to say that the fire was suspicious and that autopsies would hopefully help them determine a cause of death.
