GEORGETOWN, Ga. (AP) -- The state fire marshal's office is investigating a blaze that claimed the lives of two people in southwest Georgia.

Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said the fire happened early Friday in the Quitman County community of Georgetown.

Killed were 51-year-old Johnny Gibbs; and 62-year-old Carletha Peterson.

Hudgens said the cause of the fire does not appear suspicious. 

Georgetown is just across the Chattahoochee River from Eufaula, Ala.
