DETROIT (WJBK) - Police are investigating after two bodies were found in a burning home in the middle of the night.
Police came across the flames around 3:30 a.m. in the 19000 block of Fielding, which is near Seven Mile and Evergreen roads. We're told the officers called in the fire department, and that the fire crew discovered two bodies inside the home.
We're told the bodies are burned beyond recognition. Authorities also aren't sure right now if the victims died in the fire or if there may have been another crime and the fire was set to cover it up.
Authorities do believe at this time the fire was purposefully set -- sources say firebombed -- but it's still unclear what happened leading up to that moment. Investigators spent more than seven hours at the scene Tuesday morning.
The medical examiner will determine the sex as well as the identifies of the victims but it's not known yet how long that may take.
