Around 9:05 p.m. Friday, fire personnel alerted the police to suspicious circumstances after responding to the home for a carbon monoxide alarm call.
Upon their arrival, they could see smoke coming from the residence and when they went in to clear the home they located two bodies.
"Our detectives are trying to determine the relationship between the victims that were in the home and also a possible suspect at this time as well," said Linda Matthew with the Sacramento Police Department. "We don't feel the neighbors should be alarmed at this point."
Both subjects were declared dead by fire personnel at the scene.
Homicide detectives took over the investigation.
At this time the two subjects have not been identified and the cause of death has not been determined.
Neighbor Zainab Hammonds says the case sounds like like another tragedy which happened nearby.
"About a year ago a man killed a woman he was in a relationship with. That was over off of 24th street I believe," Zainab said.
