Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock said two bodies have been recovered in a northern Thurston County home that burned down early Thursday.
Investigators were still searching the scene Thursday afternoon. The residents’ names were not immediately released.
Crews were called to the 4300 block of Lemon Road Northeast about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. The two-story house and attached garage were destroyed, said South Bay Fire Chief Brian VanCamp.
VanCamp initially said the man and woman who lived there were unaccounted for at the time of the fire. But fire officials discovered two bodies in the rubble late Thursday.
