Three dead bodies were discovered inside a burning house owned by former tennis star James Blake on Wednesday.

The Tampa-area residence went up in flames in the early morning hours, and when firefighters raced to the scene, they discovered multiple corpses inside the home.

It’s not yet clear to investigators whether the unidentified victims were killed by the fire or beforehand.

Blake was not present at the time of the fire.

Neighbors told authorities that he has been renting out the residence.

The cause of the blaze has not been determined, and law enforcement officials may not be able to enter the destroyed property until Thursday, given structural damage to the building.
