Barney - Two people were killed in a house fire in Brooks County over the weekend.

A Deputy was on patrol late Saturday night when he noticed a home on first Avenue in Barney engulfed in flames.

Firefighters kept it from spreading to nearby homes but they found two bodies inside.

They are believed to be homeowners Harold Summers and Tammy Arnold.

To positively identify the victims and determine the cause of death, the bodies were sent to the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta for an autopsy.

The cause of the fire is still investigation by the sheriff's department and Georgia Fire Safety Commissioners Office.
