Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced the investigation into the deaths of Gerald Ryan and Roseann Ryan, both 81-year-old residents of Teaneck.

According to authorities, on Jan. 28th sometime around 6:30 a.m., the Teaneck Police Department received a report of a house fire at 130 Sherman Avenue.

Upon arrival, crews found the single family residence, consumed by heavy fire and the occupants, Gerald and Roseann Ryan, remained unaccounted for.

Following a search of the home, firefighters ultimately recovered both of the occupants’ bodies.

The exact cause of the fire is undetermined due to the extensive fire damage, authorities added. However, the fire does not appear to be suspicious in nature.
