ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (AP) – A couple has died in a western Pennsylvania house fire.

Raccoon Township Fire Chief Joe Dickton tells the Beaver County Times that the man and woman were trapped in the house that caught fire shortly before 11 p.m. Monday.

The county coroner did not immediately release information on the victims Tuesday.

A state police fire marshal was investigating the cause of the blaze.

The fire destroyed the home along Route 18, about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
