Two bodies were found in a van that burned along a roadside in Jackson County early Sunday.

The victims had not been identified, Kentucky State Police said.

State police were called at 2:18 a.m. about a vehicle fire on Blackwater Road in Privett, about seven miles east of McKee.

Firefighters from the Gray Hawk fire department extinguished the flames in the van and the two victims were found inside.
