CONIFER, Colo. (AP) -- Two people found dead at one of 16 homes destroyed by a Colorado wildfire were a married couple in their 70s.

The Jefferson County coroner identified the couple as 77-year-old Sam Lamar Lucas and 76-year-old Linda M. Lucas.

The wife was found outside the burned home on Monday evening and the husband was found inside on Tuesday.

The coroner didn't release a cause of death and authorities haven't concluded whether they died because of the fire.

A third person is missing from the same area where the bodies of the Lucases were found.
