SPRINGVILLE, Utah (AP) — Police say there's "no obvious sign of trauma or foul play" in a house where the bodies of two parents and three of their children were found near Provo, Utah.

Authorities say the main focus is to determine the cause of death. The house was tested for carbon monoxide but none was found, though it could have already dissipated.

Springville police spokesman Lt. Dave Caron says in a news release that the bodies were found last night by an older son and his two grandparents.

Police say don't believe that there is any danger to the community.

The residence was a duplex and the people in the other half of the building were unharmed.

Springville is just south of Provo.
