NEWMANSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say two people died in an early morning fire in their central Pennsylvania home.

Chief Scott Wolfe of the Newmanstown Volunteer Fire Company says the blaze was reported shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in Lebanon County's Millcreek Township.

Coroner Jeffrey Yocum's office said 64-year-old June Long was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sixty-four-year-old Philip Long was flown to Reading Hospital, where officials said he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.

Wolfe said the blaze started in the living room but the cause remains under investigation.
