TRINITY, N.C. – Two people were killed and one injured in an early morning house fire Saturday in Trinity, according to Randolph County deputies.

Authorities said the fire was reported around 12:30 a.m. in the 3700 block of Beech Circle in the Kynwood development of Trinity.

A female inside the home was able to escape, but two others were trapped inside the fire, according to officials. Names have not been released.

Authorities said the Guil-Rand Fire Department arrived to find the house fully engulfed in flames. A cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The bodies of two adults were found inside the home during firefighting efforts, according to deputies.

The surviving female was taken to a hospital and is being treated for smoke inhalation. Officials said she tried to save the two other victims, who she said were her husband and her sister.

Deputies said the fire was called into 911 by neighbors who were awoken by their dog barking at the female yelling for help.

All three victims of the fire lived at the address, according to Randolph County deputies.

The bodies of the two victims will be taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Raleigh to determine the cause of death and a positive identification.
