Two people are dead and a home destroyed after a speeding car crashed into a house sparking a two alarm fire.

Firefighters say the driver of that car and a person who lived in the home were killed.

The fire started just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday when the car veered off the street and slammed into the house in the 4200 block of Timberhill.

Fire crews say the flames immediately filled the house, and by the time first responders arrived it was an inferno.

They called for a second alarm, but the driver of the car and the person in the house could not be saved. 

The names of that driver and the resident have not yet been released.
