A woman and a dog have been found dead inside a home after a fire in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Shelby County Fire Department says the woman's body was found inside the bedroom of a home where crews put out a fire early Tuesday morning in Memphis.

The woman's name and age have not been released.

A medical examiner will determine her cause of death. Firefighters also found a dog who apparently died in the home.

Investigators determined the accidental fire was caused by careless use of candles in the bedroom. The Red Cross provided assistance for three adults.
