    Police in Vermont say two brothers died of apparent drug overdoses in a Burlington home.

    Burlington police say they responded to a house on Ward Street after family members reported Thursday morning that two brothers at the house were unresponsive.

    Authorities say when they arrived at the house at about 9 a.m., both brothers were dead. They identified them as 32-year-old Sean Thibault of Westford and 34-year-old Dennis Thibault of Burlington.

    Police say a preliminary investigation indicates they died of drug overdoses. They say autopsies will be performed Thursday or Friday.

    Burlington police say there has been an "alarming" increase in drug overdoses this year. They say they were called to the same Ward Street address two prior times on reports of drug overdoses.
