The Independence Fire Department says investigators found two bodies inside a home after a fire in the area of Pitcher Road and Blue Ridge Cutoff Saturday night.
The fire was reported at 6:40 p.m. and units from Stations 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 responded. The home was presumed to be unoccupied, but about 2 hours after the initial call, the IFD reported that a body had been found inside. Then at 11:25 it reported that a second body had been located.
The state fire marshal was called in to help with the investigation, which continues.
One firefighter was treated and released for an injury.
