The first firefighters at the scene found the home “almost completely in flames, including the grass and cars around it.”
The firefighters knew that the Adairs lived in the house and used a thermal imaging camera to find them. Their bodies were pulled from the burning home, according to the statement.
“Please keep the family of friends of (Virginia and Morris Adair) in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with this horrific tragedy,” the statement said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The man and woman were taken to a crime lab for an autopsy.
