The deputy reported a small explosion that could have been a propane tank. Deputies evacuated surrounding homes until the fire department arrived.

Fire crews learned that two family members were not accounted for. WKOW-TV reports they were later found dead. The victims’ names have not been released.

Authorities don’t know what caused the fire.
