Two dead in Lancaster County blaze

The Lancaster County coroner confirms two people died in a Denver Borough fire late Wednesday night.  The Denver Boro fire chief says they were called to a house on 4th street for reports of smoke and he says when they got here there was heavy smoke inside along with a fire on the second floor.

The chief says firefighters found two victims who were in cardiac arrest and both died as a result.  The wind didn't play a role in fighting the fire, the chief says the only problems they had were the obstacles inside.

Chief Shannon Hilton told CBS 21, "They found hoarding conditions with heavy smoke, made it to the second floor, found two victims and pulled them out and attacked the fire."Hilton says the fire marshal will start an investigation into what started the fire.
