Alaska State Troopers on Thursday identified the two people found dead in a Sutton house fire as Eleanor Riley, 75, and Michael Armstrong, 54.

A neighbor reported the fire shortly before 1 a.m. on May 9. By the time firefighters arrived at 21682 East McPherson Ave., flames swallowed the one-story home, according to the Sutton Fire Department.

One person was able to escape from the home. Troopers do not suspect any foul play, said Megan Peters, troopers spokeswoman.
