BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Authorities in Brattleboro, Vermont, say two people escaped but two were killed when a fire swept a mobile home.

Fire Chief Mike Bucossi tells television station WCAX that the blaze that started late Tuesday night was too strong by the time firefighters arrived just before midnight for them to enter the structure.

The chief says firefighters found the bodies of Glen Euber, 42, and Michelle Blake, 52, inside the home on opposite ends of the main floor. He says Blake’s body was in the room where the fire is believed to have started.

The chief says it doesn’t appear the fire was arson, but an investigation continues.

Authorities say it’s the first fire fatality in Brattleboro in eight years.
