(POKAGON TOWNSHIP) – Authorities have released the names of the two people killed in a Cass County car fire last week.

Cass County Sheriff Richard Behnke says the victims have been identified as 28 year old Chloe Clink of Dowagiac and 27 year old Electra May Sutfin of Galien.

Sheriff's Deputies and Detectives were called to the 57,000 block of M-51 South at 3:50 AM January 7. Detectives say is appears the vehicle was stuck in the driveway due to the heavy snowfall. Attempts to get the vehicle free were unsuccessful, and it's believed that carbon monoxide may have filled the passenger compartment, rendering Clink and Sutfin unconscious.

The heat from the overworked engine is believed to have caused the fire.

The incident is still under investigation.
