Investigators say an electrical problem apparently caused a North Texas house fire that has left two people dead.

Authorities in Collin County say the bodies were discovered late Monday night at a burned home in Weston, about 40 miles north of Dallas.

Collin County Fire Marshal Jason Browning says firefighters discovered the bodies close to the front door. Browning says it appears an overloaded electrical system caused the fire.

Names of the victims and further details on the fire were not immediately released.
