CONYERS, Ga. — Authorities identified two people found dead inside a burning house in Rockdale County.

Rockdale County sheriff’s officials say the bodies of 78-year-old Peggy Stanich and 68-year-old Frank Bitterman II were found inside the home shortly before noon Tuesday after a passerby reported flames.

Rockdale County Fire and Rescue spokesman Michael Morris says the first firefighters on the scene discovered both bodies.

Morris tells The Rockdale Citizen that it wasn’t known how the fire started.
