HUDSON, Florida- Two women are dead and now the Sheriff's Office is taking the lead on a double fatal fire in Hudson from Monday morning. 

It happened shortly after 7:00 a.m. on Pine Street at Hudson Avenue, just west of US-19.

The shell of a raised mobile home with gaping holes is about all that's left from where the flames shot out. Emergency crews arrived to find the two young women dead after becoming trapped inside.

"The flames were shooting out of the door, out the glass and all the windows. I see the woman half way out so of course I'm going to try to help her," said Joshua Smith who lives right next door. "She was engulfed in flames. I mean her clothing and I was just pulling on her arms and it was just a lifeless body. I knew she was dead."

The two victim's, both 24, were identified by police as Jessica Keith and her roommate, Amber Lynn Jordan. Neighbors say they lived with one of the girl's parents who arrived home to find the house still smoldering. Investigators believe the father was out walking the dog when the fire started.

The Sheriff's Office is now working with the state fire marshal conducting the extensive double death investigation. A family dog was also killed in the fire.

Investigators are waiting for the results of an autopsy, but at this point are not classifying the fire as suspicious in nature.
