Fire Officials are investigating the cause of a blaze that left two people dead in Waterbury.   The bodies of a man and woman were found inside a home on Clover Street around 7 last night.

Neighbors reported hearing an explosion as the house went up into flames.   Firefighters said they thought the house was vacant, but instead found the doors and windows barricaded from the inside.

Neighbors say the couple was reclusive and eccentric.

Firefighters say the home had no electricity. Authorities were trying to determine if the couple owned the home, rented or were squatters.
