An early morning house fire was ruled accidental, but a husband and wife are dead, officials said.
Boyd Weese, 80, and his wife, Evelyn Weese, 79, died in their Douglas County home, spokesman for the Office of Commissioner Insurance Glenn Allen said.
The home located at 64485 Ansley Blvd. in Lithia Springs was destroyed.
“My fire investigator determined that the blaze started in the attic of the home,” Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said. “We believe the fire was the result of an electrical malfunction.”
