FAYETTEVILLE, West Virginia — Authorities say two people were killed in an early-morning house fire in West Virginia.

The Register-Herald (bit.ly/1PK3pu7) reports that the fire started sometime before 1:45 a.m. Saturday in the Fayetteville house.

The Fayette County sheriff's office says that when deputies arrived at the scene, they found two residents trapped in the burning structure. The sheriff's office did not release the number of people living inside the home or if anyone made it out safely.

The bodies were taken to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Charleston for autopsies.

The fire is being investigated by the West Virginia State Fire Marshal's Office and the local sheriff's office.

Several regional volunteer fire crews battled the blaze.
