TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (DC News Now) — Neighbors in a Temple Hill neighborhood are heartbroken after a house fire on Center Drive killed two people.

Workers spent hours Sunday afternoon trying to board up a home after a deadly fire on Saturday night while PGFD spent time investigating the scene.

Many neighbors were saddened by what they saw. Some of them even stopped by to pay their respects.

Steven Hayes lives on the next street, he saw the fire from his home.

“My house is directly behind that one, and one of the guys we were watching football with made a statement, and he said, man that house on fire,” said Hayes.

Most of the inside was damaged. Walls, furniture and more were all burnt.

“I thought it was a whole lot worse than what it is, but two people really did die in this fire and it’s sad,” said Hayes.

On Sunday afternoon, Hayes took the time to pay his respects to the victims.

“It’s close to home and everybody especially in the neighborhood has to look out for one another. So today I thought we would come and say a prayer,” he said.

“If anyone can say a prayer for the families and friends of the victims god bless,” he continued.
