Two bodies were found inside the home. They're believed to be a resident of the home and a visitor. Sources tell Fox 2 a black man was found face-down in a bathroom and the other person was burned beyond recognition. Police say there was no legal electrical hookup to the house. No smoke alarms were seen in the house. Right now, the cause of the fire is being called "undetermined" but it's believed a blanket too close to a space heater may have started the deadly blaze.
