UPDATE: Hamilton County authorities are investigating a fire that claimed the life of two teenagers over the weekend.

It happened off of Dolly Pond Road in Birchwood, Sunday night. 

Friends say 18-year-old Logan Kennedy and 19-year-old Katelyn Woods had been dating and they were in love. Deputies found the young couple dead inside of Logan's grandfather's house.

"I can't imagine what they may be going through right now," said friend Jim Davis. " How they're feeling and for a grandchild or a child I just don't know, I don't have words." 

Neighbors and loved ones along Dolly Pond Road are heartbroken over the loss. They say the family has lived in the community for several years. 

Firefighters got the call around 6:30 Sunday night and when they got to the scene, the house was fully engulfed in flames. 

"This is a really close knit community and it's a shame," said Davis. " We want them to know that everybody is praying for them and trying to help them get through this tragic situation anyway that we possibly can." 

Logan's co-workers tell Channel 3, he was excited to tell them on Saturday that he had proposed to Katelyn and she said yes. There's now a collection jar at the counter where he worked for his family. 

"They're God loving people and it's just a shame, it's really tragic," said Davis. " I feel for them, they know if I can do anything for them they can call on me at anytime and all the neighbors around here feel the same way." 

The Hamilton County Sheriff's office and fire investigators were back on scene Monday morning, looking for clues in what started the fire. Investigators say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
