Two people were killed early Wednesday when their car hit a tree in Auburn and burst into flames, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash happened about 5:40 a.m. near South 277th Street and East Valley Highway (83rd Avenue South).
The driver and passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. Neither has been identified.
It was unclear what caused the driver to lose control, sheriff's deputies said.
The car reportedly left the road and went down an embankment before rolling at least once and catching fire.
Firefighters were able to quickly get the fire under control.
