UPDATED: Two bodies recovered from fire near Berryville
CARROLL COUNTY -- The Sheriff's Office has recovered two bodies from a house fire at the intersection of U.S. Highway 62 and Arkansas Highway 143.
The identities of the deceased have not been released yet, said Sheriff Bob Grudek.
"We have an arson specialist out there trying to determine the cause of the fire," Grudek said. "And just to be cautious, we have sent the two bodies to the state crime lab to determine if they had died from natural causes or the fire."
The fire completely destroyed the home, owned by Dale Woods. Woods was renting it out.
The Berryville Fire Department was called to the scene around 11:30 last night, and emergency crews were still on the scene into the late morning hours.
