CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Authorities say two bodies have been found inside a home after an early-morning fire in an unincorporated area of Pinal County.
County Sheriff Paul Babeu says the bodies are of an adult and a child.
He says they were badly burned and their identities and cause of death will need to be determined by the county medical examiner's office.
Sheriff's officials and fire crews responded to the blaze in the Desert Highlands subdivision northeast of Casa Grande about 6:30 a.m. Friday.
As crews were fighting the fire, deputies began talking to neighbors to try and determine who lived at the home.
Neighbors say a husband and wife and their 11-year-old son all lived at the home.
Babeu says detectives and fire investigators are trying to determine how the blaze began.
