LINCOLNVILLE, Maine (AP) - Maine officials say a married couple died when fire swept through their Lincolnville home.

A state police spokesman identified the couple as 81-year-old Eugene Dyer and his 79-year-old wife, Virginia.

Fire officials say the house was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene at 10:38 p.m. Saturday.

State police spokesman Stephen McCausland says the fire appears to have started in a connected storage area of the home between the house and the garage.

Investigators are working to try to determine the cause of the fire.

McCausland says a medical examiner will try to determine cause of death on Monday.

Lincolnville is a town in northern Maine with about 2,000 people.
