Officials said three people lived in the home.
“From what I know there was a man and woman who used to live there. They’re gone and from what I heard there were some squatters that lived there,” said Patty Ford, a neighbor.
“A bad day. A bad day for somebody,” Ford added.
They found the remains of one victim inside the home once the fire was out.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office homicide unit will assist the state fire marshal and medical examiner to determine the cause of death, as is standard.
