TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Two people were found dead inside a Texarkana residence after firefighters put out a blaze at the home yesterday. Police say the deceased appeared to be a man and a woman. Evidence indicated the deaths were homicides.

On the Texas side of the city, police also are investigating a vehicle fire. The vehicle was registered to a person who police believe is one of persons they found dead in the house.

Firefighters and police officers responded to a fire call early yesterday morning, where they found the two-story house engulfed in flames.

The bodies were sent to the state Medical Examiner's Office in Little Rock for autopsies.
