FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say two people died in a late night fire in Fitchburg and a third person was hospitalized.

The two-alarm blaze in the East Street home was reported at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. identified the victims as 39-year-old Lisa Englehart and 22-year-old Christopher Brinkley. Frank Huckins Sr. was taken to Leominster Hospital, where was listed in critical condition.

Early said six other residents of the home escaped and were uninjured.

Officials say the home was destroyed and a nearby home sustained damage.

The Fire Marshal’s office says the cause remains under investigation but the fire does not appear suspicious.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner accepted the case and will determine the cause and manner of death for each victim.
