The bodies of two older people that lived there were found just before 8 a.m. Ontario County Sheriff Kevin Henderson says they have no reason to believe anyone else was inside the home at the time of the explosion and fire. 

The fire chief says this appears to be an accident as the propane tank supplying the house and the pipes appear to be fine.

The names of the victims have not yet been released. 

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
