Authorities: 2 dead in suspicious fire at Detroit group home

DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say two people have been found dead following a suspicious fire at Detroit adult group home.

The fire started late Tuesday at the house on the city’s east side and a man and woman were reported dead. Names weren’t immediately released.

Deputy Fire Commissioner David Fornell says the fire started in the living room area of the house and the cause is under investigation. He says arson investigators are calling the fire “suspicious.” Broadcasters say the dead were on the second floor when the fire started.

Several other people escaped from the home, including a woman that Fornell says was lying in the front yard when firefighters arrived. Fornell says she was taken to a hospital as a precaution after suffering from what he described as an “anxiety attack.”
