Fatal Fire
By  | 

An electrical fire claimed the life of an elderly couple after they became trapped in their home during a raging fire.

Officials with the Live Oak Fire Department say they received a call just before 8 a.m. Sunday morning of a house engulfed in flames on Irvin Avenue.

In the home were an 85-year-old man and his 87-year-old wife.

Fire officials believe the couple was unable to escape the home because there were bars on all the windows and doors.

After a little bit of time trying to get in, firefighters found the couple's bodies in the kitchen area.

Their names are not being released at this time.
