Two people are killed after a house fire in Midwest City early Saturday morning.

Midwest City Police are now investigating the house fire as a suspicious death. 

Firefighters were called out to a home in the 1400 block of Maple Dr. around 5:30 a.m. Saturday. When they arrived on scene, they could see flames and smoke coming from the house. 

According to the Midwest City Fire Dept. Public Information Officer, David Richardson, a neighbor made that 911 call. Richardson said, early investigation shows the home did not have working smoke detectors. 

Neighbors tell News 9 they believe the two victims were a young couple in their 20s.

Police have not released the names of the victims.
