Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after two women died in a house fire.

From West Midlands Police:

We’ve arrested two men on suspicion of murder after two women have died following a house fire in Wolverhampton on Saturday morning (11 May).

We were called to Dunstall Hill, alongside other emergency services, just before 2am.

Two women, understood to be in their early 20s, were tragically confirmed dead at the scene and our thoughts are with their loved ones at this terrible time.

Three men and a woman were taken to hospital, with the woman currently in a critical condition.

Following initial enquiries we’ve arrested two men, aged 19 and 22.

The men, who are understood to be known to the women, will now be questioned.

We’re working with fire service colleagues to establish the cause of the fire and a scene currently remains in place.

We have officers in the area as our enquiries, including reviewing all available footage, continue.
