KILLINGWORTH, Conn. (AP) — Two people have died in separate house fires in Connecticut.

The first fire was reported at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday in Killingworth.

State Police Sgt. Eric Haglund says a body was discovered inside the home after the blaze was extinguished. An autopsy is scheduled.

Authorities say another blaze was reported at a mobile home in Naugatuck at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. That residence was fully involved by the time firefighters arrived and two women had already made their way out. They told responders that a man was asleep in a rear bedroom. The man’s body was found by firefighters during a search of the home.

The victims’ names were not immediately released and the cause of both fires is under investigation.
