Authorities investigating discovery of 2 bodies in Surprise house fire


SURPRISE, Arizona — Authorities say two bodies were pulled from a burned out home in the Surprise area.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says investigators found a second body in the wreckage Sunday, a day after another body was located.

Firefighters were called Saturday morning to 152nd Avenue and Jomax and found a house fully engulfed in flames.

Crews found one body inside after the blaze was extinguished.

But fire investigators sifting through ashes the next day found the other body.

Authorities have not yet determined any information about the victims or their cause of death.

The investigation is ongoing.
