ARVADA, Colo. (AP) - Authorities are trying to determine what caused a fire that killed two people at a group home in suburban Denver.

Arvada Fire Protection District spokeswoman Deanna Harrington says firefighters were called to the home early Saturday. They found heavy smoke billowing from the front.

Harrington says firefighters removed seven people from the home, six of whom were transported to hospitals for treatment. Two of the six were later pronounced dead.

Harrington described the house as a residential group home, but she did not have more information about the facility or the victims.
