Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials say two elderly residents were inside the home at the time of the fire and crew members had to pull them out through a window due to thick smoke inside.
"Once the sun came up, they could see smoke coming from the house and they knew people lived there and they were home," MDFR Battalion Chief Marc Chavers said.
Both victims, who were unconscious when they were found, were taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center where they later passed away.
Investigators have not released information on how the fire began.
