MOKENA, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in suburban Chicago say two people are dead after a house fire in Mokena.

Frankfort Fire District officials say firefighters pulled the victims from the south-suburban home early Wednesday. Assistant Fire Chief Bob Wilson says emergency crews responded after receiving a call that someone may be trapped inside the home.

Wilson says police attempted a rescue but encountered heavy smoke and flames. Wilson says firefighters found one person in a hallway and one person in a back bedroom.

The victims weren’t immediately identified. Investigators were working to determine the cause of the blaze.
