Two people are dead following an early morning house fire in Brighton, Ont.

Firefighters responded to the blaze on Harbour Street around 7:30 a.m. after neighbours spotted the fire and called 911.

Firefighters on scene said one body was found deceased just outside the home in the backyard while another was found inside near the rear of the house overlooking Presqu’ile Bay.

The victims have yet to be identified.

Brighton fire chief Lloyd Hutchinson said the fire was intense but was quickly brought under control.

“The cause of the fire has not been determined, nor whether working fire/ smoke alarms were present,” he said. “No names have been released pending notification of next of kin.”

He said the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal has been contacted to attend the scene.
