Two people died in a house fire in Owensboro, Kentucky, on Tuesday.

The fire, which happened at a home at the corner of Yosemite Drive and Ewing Road, is being investigated by the Owensboro Police Department.

On Wednesday, OPD identified the two people who died in the fire as 45-year-old Patrick D. James and 76-year-old Anna G. Trogden, both residents of Owensboro.

The Owensboro Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire just before 3:00 p.m to find smoking coming from the home.

According to officials, when firefighters entered, they found the blaze centralized around a mattress in one of the bedrooms. That is where they found the male victim.

The second victim, a woman, was found in another bedroom and was taken to the hospital for treatment. However, she did not survive.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Arson investigators were requested to assist due to the severity of the fire, though police say there's no indication of arson at this time.
