RANCHO CORDOVA-

A couple who died in a house fire over the weekend has been identified.

Leeon Johnson, 78, and his wife Vera, 75, died when their Rancho Cordova home caught fire early Sunday morning.

FOX40 spoke with a 14-year-old neighbor who heard the couple calling for help, and tried to reach them. But the fire prevented her and others from getting inside.

The Johnsons had several pets inside the home, including birds, cats and dogs, who also died in the fire.
