RENO, Nev. (AP) — Reno authorities say they are investigating suspicious circumstances in a deadly apartment fire that killed two people and one pet.

A fire broke out at the Stardust Apartments early Thursday.

Authorities say an adult male and adult female died in the fire.

Their identities have not been released.

A pet was also found dead.

Prior to the fire, the Stardust Apartments had evicted most of its residents because the owners sold the property last month.

Some residents had been allowed to stay until January.

The Reno Fire Department Chaplain and Red Cross say they are helping the 20 residents who were displaced because of the fire.
