Two people dead after car fire in Cass County

CASS COUNTY, Mich. – Two people have died following a car fire early Friday morning, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office announced.

According to the investigation, at 3:50 a.m., a vehicle was stuck in a driveway in the 57000 block of M-51 South because of the heavy snowfall.

Attempts to get the vehicle out were not successful and deputies believe carbon monoxide may have filled the vehicle, leaving the two occupants unconscious.
