LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified two Las Vegas boys found dead inside a burnt trailer in late January.

Clark County coroner's officials say the bodies of 15-year-old Jerry Slayden Jr. and 11-year-old Andrew Najera were found inside the trailer after the fire early the morning of Jan. 26.

Clark County Fire Department spokesman Erik Newman says the trailer was located on a residential lot on East Carey Avenue, next to an occupied home. The fire was confined to the trailer.

Investigators were trying to determine the cause of the blaze and why the boys were inside.
