2 bodies recovered after home explosion & fire

Posted:
MORAVIA (KWWL) -

Two bodies have been recovered from a home explosion in southern Iowa.

The fire happened Tuesday night in Moravia -- that's north of Lake Rathbun.

After the explosion, the two-story house was on fire when rescuers arrived, but they were unable to go inside.

They spent most of Wednesday trying to determine if anyone was actually inside when the explosion happened.

It's believed the two bodies found are the couple that lived in the home.

They were spotted returning home about an hour before the explosion happened.
