Two people are confirmed dead from an early morning house fire at 434 Randolph Ave. in Clarksville.
Clarksville Fire Department officials have yet to identify the two people found inside the home. Clarksville Fire Department Chief Tom Upton said he was uncertain if anyone else was in the home, and there were no reports of anyone else being in the residence.
But Clarksville Police Department Chief Mark Palmer confirmed in a press release later in the day that the fire is now being investigated as a crime.
“Two individuals have been recovered from the fire inside and their deaths are part of the investigation,” according to the release.
CPD officers were on the scene marking and collecting evidence late Wednesday morning.
