Two dead in early morning house fire

- Ponderosa Fire Dept Units responded to a house fire on Woodchurch near Springbridge this morning around 4:40 A.M. in the Inverness Forest Subdivision. Crews arrived to find heavy flames and smoke coming from a brick home.  The fire was so intense that a defensive battle was fought by firefighters.  They brought in a ladder truck and several hoses and were eventually able to knock the fire back.  However, it appears, at least, one elderly resident has died, and investigators are looking into the possibility of a second victim.  Further details will be given to media on scene by fire officials, as there will not be a press release.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and the identity of the victim(s) is unknown at this time, though it is likely they are the homeowners.
