A man and his young grandson were killed in a house fire early Friday in Birmingham, authorities said.

News outlets reported that firefighters received a call about a residential blaze before 3 a.m., and two people were pulled from the fire and taken to hospitals where both died.

The coroner’s office identified the victims as Bobby Miles, 67, and his 4-year-old grandson, Kyree Phillipe Miles.

Photos from the scene showed heavy fire damage inside a brick home, but authorities didn’t immediately say what caused the blaze.
