Firefighters were dispatched about 11:40 a.m. to the 28000 block of Flowerpark Drive and extinguished the blaze in about half an hour, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. Another was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died, said Investigator Kristy McCracken.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
