CORPUS CHRISTI - Homicide investigators and the State Fire Marshal's office are looking into the discovery of two bodies inside a burning home this morning. There's been no announcement from authorities on whether foul play is suspected.
Before 9 a.m. firefighters were called out to the house in the 400 block of Military Drive. As they got inside ammunition burning in the fire started going off. Crews were able to get the fire out in a matter of minutes.
Neighbors tell us Charles Delong III and Cheryl Harville shared the home, but there's no word on their relation. A third person who lives in the home was not there when police and firefighters arrived.
The bodies of a man and woman were pulled from the home. Police say one of the bodies had a single gunshot wound. There's no confirmation on whether that person was shot before the fire or was hit by a bullet set off by the fire.
The bodies were found in different parts of the home. The home is currently blocked off with crime scene tape.
Officials say they found the body of a dog inside the home. Another dog revived by emergency crews ran away soon afterwards.
