MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Two people were killed in a late night house fire in Madison County.

It happened on Walnut Grove Road in New Market around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Hazel Green, Meridianville, and New Market fire crews responded, but the fast-moving flames destroyed the house before they even arrived.

Two bodies were found inside the home. Family members identified them as DeWayne Mitchell and Anthony "Bucky" Buchanan.

Coroner Craig Whisenant said the bodies were badly burned and it may be a week before they can be officially identified. Both bodies have been sent for autopsies.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but fire officials believe a wood-burning stove is to blame. It was being used for heat, since the home had no power.

The State Fire Marshal is investigating the fire for an official cause.
