Man, woman killed in suburban Cleveland house fire; cause of blaze under investigation


NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio — Firefighters say two people died after a house fire in the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted.

The fire broke out Friday morning. Firefighters say a man was found dead inside the house, and a woman taken out of the home later died at a hospital.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Medical Examiner's Office identified her as 73-year-old Gloria Joyce of North Olmsted. Neighbors told local media that her husband was the man who died, but authorities didn't immediately identify him.

Authorities say a neighbor spotted the fire and called 911.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
