2nd body found after Lower Allen fire

CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) -

A second body has been recovered from a Lower Allen Township home that was destroyed by fire.

Police said a man's body was found this morning under a large pile of debris and removed by the Cumberland County Coroner's Office.

The first body, that of a woman, was discovered around 5:15 p.m. Monday, about seven hours after the fire started in the 1600 block of Carlisle Road.

The bodies have not been positively identified, but are believed to be those of the elderly couple who lived in the home. Their names have not been released.

Autopsies are scheduled Wednesday at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown.

"The male was seen outside of the house 30 minutes or so prior to the fire being discovered," Lower Allen Police Chief Frank Williamson said. "With the floor collapses, we weren't sure where we would find his body, but they both ended up being found in the same second story bedroom."

Officials believe the fire started in the basement, but because of the severe damage to the home they said they may never know the exact cause. The fire has been ruled undetermined in origin.
