Two people were killed and two others were injured in a fire that destroyed a home in Bar Harbor on Sunday.

The fire at the home on Russell Farm Road was reported at about 8 a.m.

The Maine Fire Marshal’s Office said one of the residents of the home called 911 to report it was on fire.

The caller said his son jumped from a second-story window to escape the flames, but his wife and other son were still in the home.

Firefighters were unable to rescue the two people trapped in the home.

The Fire Marshal’s Office said the two who escaped were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. One was later taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, and the other was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland.

The names of the victims are not being released until the remains are positively identified, officials said.
