Two men died after a fire broke out inside an abandoned house in the Bronx, officials say.
The fire started Wednesday just before 12 a.m. on Faile Street in Hunts Point.
Officials say after the fire was put out, they discovered two men in their 30s lying unconscious inside the home.
The men were transported to the hospital where officials say they were pronounced dead. 
Firefighters say they do not believe the fire is suspicious and the two men may have died due to smoke inhalation. 
The FDNY is still investigating the cause of the fire.
