Joaquin Enriquez, public information officer for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, said two people were killed in the fire near RH Johnson Boulevard and Bell Road.

Crews responded to the fire shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Enriquez said it was initially believed the home was occupied, but crews weren't able to immediately confirm it. MCSO has since confirmed that the home was occupied by an elderly woman and a middle aged man.
