    DUMMERSTON – An early morning fire has claimed the life of an elderly father and his son, Vermont State Police said Monday.

    Vermont State Police Det. Lt. Todd Illingworth confirmed that the fire at 420 School House Road claimed two lives. He said the names of the victims would be released later Monday afternoon.

    “The fire is being investigated by both the fire marshal's office and the arson unit,” said the lieutenant, based at the Rockingham barracks. He said that both units typically investigate a fatal fire and until the arson investigation was completed, he wouldn't rule out arson.

    Both the father and the son were in the residence when the fire broke out, sometime around 5 a.m.

    “We will have to wait for the autopsy for cause of death,” he said.
