CLARKSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - Police are looking for a 17-year-old boy as they investigate the discovery of two bodies in a burning home in western New York.

Officials closed local schools and issued a shelter-in-place advisory after the bodies were found early Thursday morning in the Allegany County town of Clarksville.

State police say they want to question the teenager, who was at the scene as the fire was being put out but left before troopers arrived.
