Two Killed In Greensboro House Fire

Firefighters in Greensboro say a woman and her husband died following an early-morning house fire.

The fire department was sent to the single-family home after a fire was reported at 12:34 a-m. The fire was under control in slightly more than an hour.

Virginia Beckner was pronounced dead at the scene. Everett Beckner was taken to Moses Cone Hospital, where he was pronounced dead later this morning.

Neighbors pulled Everett Beckner out of the fire but were unable to reach Virginia Beckner. Firefighters later removed her from the home.

Fire investigators are trying to determine the cause.
