HERRIN - Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a house fire in Herrin Friday morning. Williamson County Corner confirmed that two females died in the fire.
Fire fighters were called just after midnight to a home on North 18th street, near North Side Primary School.
The rear part of the home was badly damaged by the fire. The fire appears to have started on the back porch. An outdoor gas grill was located on the edge of the porch.
A crime scene Investigator with the Illinois State Police and an arson investigator were both on scene examining the damage.
One neighbor used a fire extinguisher to try to put out the fire -- but the flames were too intense.
