Two people died in a house fire near Berryville on Monday night.

Carroll County Sheriff Bob Grudek says the investigation is ongoing into the fire that occurred about eight miles east of Eureka Springs. The sheriff says two bodies were recovered from the home.

Grudek says an arson specialist will examine the structure and gather evidence to determine the cause of the blaze.

The bodies were sent to the State Crime Lab in Little Rock for autopsies.  The house was a rental home.
