Firefighters found two people dead early Wednesday after putting out a blaze in North Philadelphia rowhouse, officials said.

The fire in the two-story house on the 2700 block of North Ninth Street was reported before 2 a.m. and quickly brought under control, officials said.

Inside the house, firefighters found the bodies of a man and woman.

The victims have been identified by relatives as Tahisa Goode, 37, and Steven Tomoney, 33, a neighbor and father of two young children.

Fire marshals are investigating to determine the cause of the fire. 6ABC reported that an altercation at the house Tuesday night raised the possibility the fire was deliberately set.

In a separate overnight fire in the city, firefighters battled a four-alarm blaze at a Kensington scrapyard.
