Ardmore Fire Officials now say the two homeless people that were killed in a fire Tuesday morning are 54-year-old Robert Newman and 51-year-old Sandra Newman. They both died of thermal burns and smoke inhalation.
The Fire Chief says the couple ran extension cords from a nearby vacant house to run their space heaters. He says it was either the heaters or a fire they set in a can that ignited the flames.
The couple had been staying in an abandoned house in the 200 block of 10 Street Northwest for about three months.
