Carrollton firefighters discover 3 bodies while responding to house fire

CARROLLTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) The Carrollton Police Department is investigating after three people were found dead on Saturday by firefighters responding to reports of smoke billowing from a home.

On October 1, just before 4 p.m., Carrollton Fire Rescue crews responded to reports of smoke from a home on the 3900 block of Alto Ave.

Upon arrival, firefighters found the house on fire. While fighting the flames, they discovered the bodies of three dead adults inside.

Two of the bodies, a 51-year-old woman and a 77-year-old man, both showed signs of trauma. The third, a 53-year-old man, was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
