Two bodies have been found at the scene of a fire that destroyed a tech millionaire's Maryland mansion, fire officials said Wednesday. Authorities said they bodies hadn't yet been identified, but the home's owner, Don Pyle, chief operating officer of ScienceLogic, his wife, Sandra, and four other people were classified as missing after the fire Monday morning.
Heat from the four-alarm fire that destroyed the two-story, seven-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot mansion on Monday morning was so intense and the scene was flooded by so much water that search and investigative efforts weren't able to begin until Wednesday morning, said Capt. Russ Davies, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.
Davies and other officials would give no other details at a news conference Monday afternoon other than to say they haven't classified the fire as suspicious
"There is still a lot of work to be done," Davies said. "This is a massive effort and will take days to complete."
