Two dead, five others injured in 'well-involved' Santa Ana house fire

Two people are dead and five others suffered burns after a fire broke out at a Santa Ana home early Wednesday morning.

The home in the 2100 block of North Hathaway Street was "well involved" in flames by about 6 a.m. when crews arrived, the Orange County Fire Authority said on its Twitter account that residents were possibly trapped inside.

“We do have two fatalities inside and we have five burn patients,” Capt. Steve Concialdi said, adding two of the patients were critical and the other three were minor.

It was unclear what kind of home or facility had burned, or whether there were working smoke detectors inside, he added.

"We're not sure if the home had fire alarms or if they're working or not," Concialdi said on KTLA-TV. "Smoke alarms save lives."
