Merseyside Police can confirm an investigation is underway after two people died following a fire at a property in Tuebrook earlier this morning (Thursday, 8 May)
Emergency services were called to a property on Moscow Drive at about 5.30am following a report of a fire.
Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service attended and the fire was extinguished. Two people, a woman believed to be in her 40s and a child, were found inside a flat inside the property and were both pronounced dead at the scene.
At this time we cannot confirm the age or sex of the child.
At this stage it is too early to draw conclusions about the cause of the fire and it is unhelpful to speculate.
The scene has been cordoned off at this time for examination and officers are continue carrying out enquiries in the local area.
Enquiries are underway to establish the identity of the two people found in the property.
A full investigation into the circumstances of the incident is ongoing.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Merseyside Police onÂ 0151 777 4067Â or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
