2 killed in Vancouver house fire

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say two people have died due to a house fire in Vancouver, Washington. Crews were dispatched around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. Because of the conditions, crews were forced to first put out a large body of the fire before entering the home. KOIN reports that after entering, crews said the ceiling of the first floor had collapsed, covering the area with sheet rock and insulation. A woman found under the debris was taken out of the home and to a hospital in an ambulance. A man was found dead a short time later. The woman later died.
