Remains of 2 people found at S. Calif. fire scene

COMPTON, Calif. (AP) — Human remains have been found in the burned-out remains of a Southern California commercial and residential building where two people have been missing.

Los Angeles sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker says the remains of two people were found Monday, and homicide and arson officials are investigating. There’s no further information about the remains.

A family of six lived in a converted loft on the second floor above an auto mechanic shop at the Compton property. Four members of the family escaped, but the mother and a daughter have been missing since the blaze, which was contained at 3:24 a.m.
