SHAKER HEIGHTS -- Firefighters found the body of a 62-year-old father and 18-year-old daughter on the second floor.

The Shaker Heights Fire Department is still investigating how the fire started, while neighbors say a prayer for those who will never come home.

Flames spread quickly through the Daleford home --  chasing five family members out. Two others never made it.

It's a tragedy. It's tragic to lose anybody at anytime of the year. And to have two fatalities, it's difficult for all first responders, the family.

Heavy flames covered the entire first floor of the home just after 4 a.m. when fire crews from dozens of communities arrived.

Crews attempted to make an attack and were pushed out pre-flashover. All they could do was put out the blaze.

Once inside,  firefighters found the body of a 62-year-old father and 18-year-old daughter on the second floor.
