HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - The bodies of two adults have been found in the kitchen of a house severely damaged in a fire Wednesday in the Portland suburb Hillsboro.

Fire department spokesman Bruce Montgomery says that neither the cause of the deaths nor the cause of fire had been determined.

The victims were not immediately identified. Montgomery says they lived in the one-story house.

He says a column of smoke was rising above the house and flames were through the roof when fire crews arrived about 7 a.m.

Montgomery says a three-person rescue team went in, but one member got separated. So all three were called back until the firefighters could control the blaze. After that, firefighters found the bodies.

Firefighters say they found one smoke alarm, but it had no batteries.
