HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say they do not suspect foul play in a weekend house fire that left two men dead and another injured in northeast Houston.

The Houston Fire Department on Monday said investigators are trying to determine what sparked the blaze.

Police say one man awoke early Saturday and saw that the house was fire, attempted to put out the blaze but failed and managed to flee. He suffered minor injuries.

Police say another man died at the scene. Another man was transported to a Houston hospital and died several hours later.

Names of the victims weren't immediately released.
