Two dead in a regional Victorian house fire

Two people have been found dead after a blaze ripped through a house north of Melbourne, police have confirmed.


The home at Tallarook, 88 kilometres north of Melbourne, was destroyed in a blaze late on Sunday night.


Police initially reported two occupants, believed to be a mother and child, were unaccounted for and discovered their bodies in the charred remains of the home on Monday morning. They are yet to be formally identified.

No other occupants were believed to be present at the time of the fire, which has been deemed non-suspicious. The cause of the fire remains under investigation and police will prepare a report for the coroner.
