One person is dead and two more are hurt after an early morning house fire in Anchorage on Thursday.

Firefighters arrived at the home on the 5300 block of Tudortop Circle, off Lake Otis Parkway, around 3:25 a.m., Anchorage Fire Marshal Cleo Hill said.

By that time, the roof and deck were on fire, Hill said.

Nineteen firefighting units responded to the scene and brought the blaze under control at 4:50 a.m. The two people who were injured were taken to a hospital.

Renee Oistad, a spokeswoman for the Anchorage Police Department, said the identity of the person who died had not been confirmed. Their name will be released once their family has been notified, she said.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation, Hill said.
