Two women are presumed dead following a fire that burned a home near Bonanza.
Josh Hunt watched as the fire burned...He believes that his mother and her sister were killed in the fire...
"Came out, the house was on fire. No idea what started it. No idea what happened. All we know is the house burned completely down, my mom and my aunt was in it - now they're dead."
"We have not confirmed that yet." Cautions Kathy Longoria of Klamath County Fire District #5. "We have been told by family that there is possibly two people in there, but we don't know that yet."
The fire broke out shortly before noon at the Teal Drive home of Patricia Hunt and Jeannie Wilson.
"We don't know what started it." Notes Longoria. "When I arrived, the back part of it was burning. It's too hot now to get in and investigate."
The house is in a heavily forested area...wildland fire crews were called in to help keep the fire from spreading.
State Police have been called in to investigate the cause of the fire, and to recover any possible remains.
"We won't know that until it cools off." Adds Kathy Longoria. "And then we can actually go in and try a recovery."
Both of the women in the home were reportedly in poor health.
