Detroit — Two bodies were found "burned beyond recognition" on Detroit's west side early Monday morning, authorities said.

Detroit Fire Department was dispatched to the 3700 block of Pingree at about 6:35 a.m. That's south of Joy Road and just west of Dexter.

Dave Fornell, deputy commissioner of the fire department, said the bodies were found on the first floor of the property. 

Members of the Detroit Fire Department, Detroit Police Department and the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office enter a home where two bodies were discovered after a house fire.

It's too early into the investigation to say whether the fire is accidental, suspicious or arson, Fornell said.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office will work to identify the victims and determine their cause of death.
