Two women killed in Hudson house fire

HUDSON, Fla. -
Two women were found dead and a dog was severely burned at a home in Hudson after it caught fire Monday morning
"I tried to get her out," said a neighbor who lives about 50 yards away from the home.
Neighbors say Jessica Keith, 24, and her roommate Amber Lynn Jordan, 24, had only lived in their Pine Street home for about a month.  One of the womens' parents was living with them until their home was complete just down the road.
A neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said his wife rushed to wake him up this morning around 7:00 when she saw the smoke.  He says he jumped up and ran to the house.
The neighbor said the father of one of the women in the fire was screaming, "My daughter is in there!"
The neighbor said by the time he got to the deck stairs, flames were shooting from the windows and door.
"It was so hot.  It's like I got an instant suntan," he said.
The neighbor said he saw one of the women, but the intense heat became too much for him to help.
A chaplain arrived to the scene to pray with the family as the mother and father are still waiting for more details as to what happened.
Neighbors said the house was a newer building and from what they know, had working smoke detectors, but that hasn't been confirmed by fire officials.
Officials said the womens' cars were missing.
The State Fire Marshal was investigating the cause of the deadly blaze.
