ESCONDIDO (NEWS 8) - Two bodies were found in Escondido Thursday, one was found in a home, the other in a burned-out car, officials said.

Then shortly before 4:30 a.m., firefighters responded to a report of a burning vehicle near the intersection of Kauana Loa and Country Club Drives, in the unincorporated area of Escondido, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Karla Menzies said.

Crews discovered a body inside the vehicle once the fire was under control, Menzies said.

The plates on the burned vehicle are registered to a couple at the home in the 500 block of Escondido.

Investigators told CBS News 8 that there were two children found inside the house in Escondido and that the children are safe in police care.
