The state's attorney's office is now involved in the case, and police are being very tight-lipped.

Police are investigating the death of a woman pulled from the burning home. Firefighters arrived at the house around 4 a.m. Sunday. They also found a car in the driveway engulfed in flames.

Firefighters rescued a man and a woman inside the burning home. Paramedics took them to the hospital, but the woman was pronounced dead. The medical examiner has identified her as 24-year-old Paula Morgan.

Neighbors who lived near the home on South Ahrens were told to evacuate.

"Police were pounding on the door. I said, 'Who is it?' They said, 'Police, you have to get out.' I thought it was a bomb scare or something," one man said.

Morgan's autopsy is set for Monday.

The unidentified man is hospitalized; his condition has not been released.
