Police say two people were found dead in a fire at an up-scale home in South Surrey.
Fire crews responded to reports of the blaze Thursday afternoon, where they found heavy smoke from the building and called in a second alarm for additional help.
The deaths have been deemed suspicious, and the Integrated Homicide Investigations Unit has taken over the case
