Two persons died in separate fires Saturday night.
The first was reported in Paso Ancho about 10 p.m. about 100 meters north of the Circunvalación highway in San José. There a man with the last name of Madrigal appears to have lighted some incense in his home, and the blaze got out of control. The home was destroyed.
The second fire was in San Ramón de Río Claro in Golfito. A neighbor called in the alarm when he saw an adjacent home ablaze, said investigators.
Agents were not able to determine immediately if the victim of the blaze was the man who rented the dwelling.
