SAN ANTONIO (AP) - An elderly husband and wife have died in an apparent accidental blaze that destroyed their San Antonio house.

A spokeswoman for the San Antonio Fire Department said Tuesday that investigators are trying to determine if an electrical problem started the fire. Deborah Foster says the bodies of an 82-year-old man and his 83-year-old wife were located in the rubble.

Names of the victims weren't immediately released.

Foster says the couple's daughter lives next door and she heard a popping sound around 11:30 p.m. CST Monday. Foster says the daughter went outside to investigate, saw her parents' house on fire and summoned help.

Foster says the fire does not appear to have been suspicious.
