NINEVEH, Ind. (RTV6) -- Emergency crews are responding to a "fully-involved" fire with possible entrapment in rural Johnson County.

Dispatchers said the fire erupted at a house in Nineveh, just outside Camp Atterbury. Lifeline has been called to the scene.

This is a developing situation.

According to RTV6, this morning Sheriff Cox said two bodies were recovered from the scene in the front (south) end of the home upstairs. Cox said the bodies have not yet been identified, but an autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.

Cox said the first body was recovered by fire crews who were sifting through the rubble of the home. The second body was recovered by a cadaver dog called to the scene.

RTV6 originally reported the age of the oldest daughter as 6 years old, as that's what investigators were reporting. However Sheriff Cox said early Saturday morning the girl is 5.
