ROCKY MOUNT, NC (AP) -- Officials in Rocky Mount say a man and a 5-year-old boy have been killed in a house fire.

Spokeswoman Tameka Kenan-Norman said firefighters were dispatched to a single-story home shortly before 10 p.m. Monday night. When they arrived, they found a house and minivan engulfed in flames.

Kenan-Norman said when firefighters got inside the home, they found the body of 63-year-old Frederick Saseqha. Local media reported that Mike Varnell, assistant fire chief with the Rocky Mount Fire Department, identified the second victim found inside the home as Saseqha's grandson, Iziaha Crews.

Varnell said the cause of the fire hasn't been determined and that an investigation is underway.
