Two people were found dead after a fire was extinguished at a home in Whitley County early Friday.

Kentucky State Police said their investigators were called to a residence on Wolf Creek River Road at 12:36 a.m., after firefighters put out the flames and found the bodies.

The identities of the victims and their cause of death is pending, state police said. Autopsies are scheduled for Saturday.
