SANDY SPRINGS, Ga . (AP) -- Firefighters pulled a man and a woman from a burning duplex north of Atlanta, but both were later pronounced dead.
Three firefighters were recovering from minor injuries after the early Monday morning blaze in Sandy Springs.
Officials said fire crews had to force their way into the building on North River Parkway. Once inside, they found a man in his 50s and a woman in her 80s, both in cardiac arrest.
