(WBIR-Greeneville) Greeneville Police are investigating after two babies were found dead in a home.

Detective Captain Tim Davis said 911 received a call at 7:48 am Wednesday about a 13-month-old child in distress at a house on 304 North Hardin Street.

The Greeneville Fire Department found the baby was unresponsive when they arrived. They also discovered a second baby, a 2-month-old, unresponsive in the same home.

Both children were taken to a hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Detective Captain Davis with the Greeneville Police Department said it is too early in the investigation to say what caused the death of the children, though he did say there's "no reason to be suspicious of anyone at this time."

No names have been released, but officials confirmed the two are siblings.

"This investigation is being handled as just a death. We don't have any reason to point to this as a suspicious death or not a suspicious death," Davis added.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and DCS have also been called to help in the investigation.
