FRACKVILLE, Pa. -- Police have been at a home in Schuylkill County for much of the day after two people were found dead inside.

The home is on South Fifth Street off Route 61 in Frackville. Police tape surrounds the property and the road is blocked off.

Investigators have been on the scene throughout the afternoon. Authorities were called to the home shortly before noon Thursday. When they got there, two women were found dead inside.

Police say this is an isolated incident and the public is not in any danger.

Investigators say the bodies of Christine Moran, 54, and Josephine Kodis, 97, were found inside the home.

According to investigators, the bodies of the women have been in the home for a week or two.

People in the area are surprised.

"Totally shocked, to be honest with you. Frackville is very calm, quiet, cool town. I don't really know what happened. But it's really shocking and sad of course," said Steven D'Quinn.

An autopsy has been scheduled to find out the cause of death for both women in Schuylkill County.
