2 Killed In Early Morning Pacifica Fire

PACIFICA (KCBS) – Two people were killed, and several others displaced in an early morning three-alarm house fire in Pacifica Sunday.

Matt Lucett of the North Coast Fire Authority said crews arrived on the scene shortly before 6 a.m. and saw the two-story, Cape Cod-style home on Inverness Drive engulfed in flames.

"Some of the residents that were able to get out of the house reported two victims possibly still inside," Lucett said. "So we made an interior attack and were eventually forced out."

KCBS' Chris Filippi Reports:

Crews were eventually able to control the fire about 30 minutes later and upon examining the home, found the two bodies inside.

The victims have not been identified but investigators said it was a man and child.  Fire officials are still looking into what may have caused the blaze.

The American Red Cross is helping the displaced residents
