OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say heat from a light bulb caused a fire that fatally injured two people in southeast Omaha.

The March 9 fire killed 21-year-old Bibiano Pacheco-Perez and 24-year-old Brenda Martinez-Palma. Authorities say at least 11 people were living in the home, but no other injuries were reported.

The Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1YcyY58 ) reports that fire officials say the light bulb touched off flames in combustibles that were placed too close to the bulb.
