POCAHONTAS, Arkansas — Firefighters in Pocahontas say two people were killed in a house fire on the city's south side.

The names of the victims of the Sunday night fire were not immediately released.

Fire Chief Jimmy Shields told KAIT (http://bit.ly/1gUISq1 ) that the home and a vehicle were engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 10:15 p.m. Sunday.

Shields said the cause of the fire has not been determined — but that it did not appear to be suspicious.
