The Fayette County Coroner has identified a pair of brothers who killed in a house fire in German Township.

Wilbur Shea, 72, and James Edward Shea, whose age investigators have yet to determine, were pronounced dead at the scene on Friday evening, said Coroner Phillip Reilly. The men died of severe burns.

Mr. Reilly said the pair was found at the home they shared located at 507 7th Street. The fire burned so severely it caused the home to collapse, he said.
