DOUGLASSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — State police are investigating after they found three people dead following a garage fire at an eastern Pennsylvania home.

Police in Berks County say crews were dispatched to the Union Township address shortly before 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The bodies of three people and the carcass of a pet were found, but there was no immediate word on the cause of death.

Trooper David C. Beohm said early Sunday the victims had not been identified. He said it is still an “active crime scene.”

Neighbors said a family of three — a couple and an adult son — moved to the property several years ago after losing their southern New Jersey home in Superstorm Sandy.
