GRISWOLD, Conn. — State police say they’ve found the body of a second person following an early morning house fire in Griswold that is apparently connected to a car fire in another Connecticut town.

Firefighters responded to a fire at Kenwood Estates shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday and found one person dead. Late Wednesday night, state police announced that they had found a second body inside the home. Autopsies will be conducted to determine cause and manner of death.

State police say detectives also were called to an abandoned car fire in Glastonbury Wednesday morning. They say an initial investigation found that the vehicle is associated with the house fire in Griswold. No other details were immediately available.

State police say the investigation is ongoing.
