ADDISON, Ill. -- An elderly couple is dead after a house fire in west suburban Addison.

Flames broke out shortly after 2:30 a.m. Monday at a house on Ellsworth Avenue and Armitage.

Fire officials believe the fire started in the kitchen area of the home and moved up into the attic.

Neighbors say the couple lived in the house for about eight years, and kept to themselves.  They were in their 70's and the woman was handicapped.

They were found dead in the back bedroom.

Fire officials say there were no working smoke detectors inside the home.

They don't know what caused the fire, but the cause is not suspicious.
