A two-alarm fire that swept through a Fairview home early Friday killed three people, during Anchorage's deadliest blaze in the past year.
Anchorage Fire Department fire marshal Cleo Hill said dispatchers received numerous calls at about 1:30 a.m. reporting a burning residence on the 1100 block of East 17th Avenue. Responding crews found heavy flames at the residence, part of a row of independently owned townhouse condos, and a total of 25 AFD units were ultimately called to the scene.
The victims were discovered as crews were working the fire, Hill said. Their identities weren't immediately released Friday morning.
