RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - Richmond fire officials say two people were killed and one critically injured in a fire at a garage that had been converted into living space.
Firefighters were called to the home early Thursday morning. They arrived to find the garage in the back of the residence fully engulfed in flames.
Battalion Chief Manly Moulton says the fire was put out in ten minutes. The victims - a man and woman in their 50s - were then found inside the garage.
A 26-year-old man tentatively identified as their son suffered critical burn injuries.
The cause of fire is not known, but investigators say cigarette butts, alcohol and fireworks were found outside.
