2 die in Front Range house fire

THORNTON ” Two people were found dead in a house fire, and police are investigating whether the blaze was deliberately set.

The fire was reported Tuesday morning in this north Denver suburb. The victims’ names had not been released.

Firefighters found the body of a man near sliding-glass doors at the back of the house and another in a rear bedroom, police spokesman Matt Barnes said. The second body was so badly burned that authorities had not determined whether it was a man or a woman, Barnes said.

Arson investigators, Thornton police and Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents were treating the house as a crime scene, Barnes said.
