A Morton County couple died Saturday night when a fire engulfed their home.

According to the Morton County Sheriff’s office, an officer on patrol called the Morton County Fire Department a little after 10 p.m. Saturday, when the officer saw a home engulfed in flames. The bodies of Kenneth McCurry, 67, and his wife, Shirley McCurry, 65, were found in the burning home, which a law enforcement official says was a total loss.

The case was handed over to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Special agent in charge, Bruce Miller, with the KBI, said no foul play is suspected, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
