RENO - The bodies of two adults have been found at the scene of a Reno-area house fire, and their suspicious deaths are under investigation.

Washoe County sheriff's spokesman Armando Avina said the bodies of a man and woman were recovered Saturday evening after firefighters responded to the blaze in Spanish Springs.

He said the cause of their deaths was still unknown, and their names were being withheld pending a formal identification by the medical examiner's office.

The garage was fully engulfed in flames when emergency crews arrived, and the blaze caused significant damage throughout the house, Avina said.
