LUPTON, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say an elderly Michigan couple died following a house fire that apparently started in the kitchen of their home.

State police say firefighters responded to the home in the Ogemaw County community of Lupton on Tuesday after a person called to report a fire. Troopers responded to the home in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula and found it engulfed in flames.

Firefighters from area departments responded and found two people unresponsive inside. Police say they were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police identified the dead as 91-year-old Ernest Foor and his wife 87-year-old Genevieve Foor. Investigators believe Ernest Foor was the 911 caller.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but police say it doesn’t appear to be suspicious.
