BUTLER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say an overnight fire claimed the lives of a man and woman in western Pennsylvania.
Firefighters in Butler were called to the home shortly before 2 a.m. Monday and reported the building engulfed in flames.
The fire marshal told KDKA-TV that the body of a man was found in a hall and a woman’s body was found in a bed.
Butler Fire Chief Kevin McAfee said the amount of material being kept in the home hampered fire crews’ efforts to battle the blaze.
