CLEVELAND — Authorities have identified two sisters who died in a fire last week in a duplex in northeastern Ohio.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office reports that 89-year-old Mary Wright and her 85-year-old sister, Jeannette Arlington, were found dead the morning of Jan. 20 inside the duplex.

Fire officials say the blaze began around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say both floors of the duplex were engulfed by the time firefighters arrived on the scene.

It took about four hours for fire crews to get the blaze under control.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
