Two elderly people are dead after a fire in West Oak Lane.
It happened at 3 a.m. on the 6300 block of North Beechwood Street.
Officials say an elderly man was taken to the hospital where he later died. An elderly woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
Firefighters say it started on the second floor of the home, and the smoke alarms were not working.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
This brings the total number of fire fatalities to 23.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
