News Staff - October 10, 2018

LEAD, S.D. - Fire investigators in Lead are trying to figure out what sparked a deadly fire early Saturday morning

The fire claimed the lives of two people.

Firefighters responded to the blaze shortly after 4:30 a.m. and found the home engulfed in flames. Fire officials say they couldn't enter the home because of heavy smoke and nature of the fire.

Tuesday, the Lead Police Department says they have positively identified one of the fire victims as 85-year old Delores Butcher.

They say the other victim has been tentatively identified as her 62-year old son Keith Butcher pending the results of DNA testing.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to that one home ... preventing it from spreading to other nearby homes.
