They went in and found a dead woman on the second floor. That's when police discovered that the house was on fire and had to quickly evacuate. After the fire was extinguished, investigators searched the property and found a second body in the basement. Neither an I-D nor cause of death has been determined for the second body yet. The fire has been ruled arson. Anyone with information is asked to call State Police at 561-7400.
