Investigators on Sunday were still working to identify a man and a woman found dead after a suspicious fire in Salt Lake County.

Unified police spokesman Justin Hoyal said the two, who were found dead about 8:25 a.m. Friday inside a burned residence at 2811 E. Ksel Drive (9457 South), had not been identified. He said identification is taking time because of the fire.

Firefighters discovered the bodies in the master bedroom as they were extinguishing a blaze at the home.

Authorities said the fire appeared suspicious because the burn patterns were not consistent with an accidental fire.

Investigators have said they are treating the deaths as homicides.
