LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) - Firefighters responding to a call in South Florida found two bodies in a smoky home.

Lauderhill Fire Rescue crews went to the home on Sunday afternoon. They saw smoke inside the home, but no fire.

They also saw someone who appeared to be passed out so they forced their way into the home. They found a pot on the stove, which apparently caused the smoke.

They also found the second body. Authorities haven't released the names of the victims or any additional details. Lauderhill is near Fort Lauderdale.
