Two people were found dead after a house fire in the foothill community of Mountain Ranch early Wednesday morning, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies, arson investigators and a Cal Fire crew were called to a home along Mountain Meadow Drive around 1 a.m. after getting a report of a structure fire.
At the scene, they found a home going up in smoke and were told that two people may be trapped inside.
Investigators later found two people dead inside the home.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated. The two people found dead have not been identified at this time.
