    Suffolk County police say they responded to the fire on Spur Drive North in North Bay Shore at 8:30 p.m. Monday.

    Smoke and fire was rising from the rear of the house. Neighbors told firefighters that the house was occupied.

    Firefighters found Luis Zayas and Angela Alvarez unconscious in a ground floor bathroom. They were taken to a hospital where Zayas was pronounced dead.
