BEALLSVILLE, Ohio- Authorities say two people were found dead after a fire destroyed a mobile home in rural eastern Ohio.

The fire broke out Wednesday evening at a residence near rural Beallsville, roughly 100 miles east of Columbus. A statement from the Monroe County sheriff’s office says firefighters responding to a 911 call found the home fully engulfed in flames.

The two bodies were found after the blaze was extinguished. The sheriff’s office didn’t immediately release their identities, but WTRF-TV in nearby Wheeling, West Virginia, reported that two men died and that they were brothers.

County coroner’s investigator Randy Williams told the station that the deaths are suspicious, but he didn’t explain why.

The state fire marshal’s office is expected to help with the investigation.
