SOUTHOLD - Fire officials say two people were found dead this morning following a house fire on Goose Creek Lane in Southold.

About 100 firefighters from Southold, Greenport, Mattituck and Cutchogue fire departments responded to the 911 call. Officials say they arrived within two minutes of the call, but by then the two-story home was already fully engulfed in flames.

Police have not released the victims' names, but neighbors say they are an elderly mother and her daughter who were both well-known in the community.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is under way.
