LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say two people have been killed in an Arkansas house fire.

Little Rock fire Capt. Jason Weaver says a man and a woman he described as elderly were found dead inside the home Tuesday evening.

Weaver says about 20 percent of the home was covered in flames by the time firefighters arrived.

Once they knocked down the flames firefighters moved inside the home and found the two. The relationship between the two victims was not immediately clear. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities have not said what caused the fire.
