EUFAULA, Okla. – Investigators are still trying to sort through evidence after two bodies were discovered inside a burning mobile home near Eufaula.

 

Emergency crews were called to a house fire near Eufaula around 9 p.m. on Wednesday night.

When deputies with the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office arrived, they say they were met by a man with a shotgun.
