The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office says a husband and wife  died in a large house fire near Buckeye Lake.  It happened Thursday just after midnight on Shell Beach Drive.  Investigators identify the dead as Milton Clagg and Mary Clagg, both 62.  Fire fighters from Perry, Licking and Fairfield Counties battled the blaze, which was made more difficult by frigid temperatures.  Other residents got out safety and nobody else was hurt.  The house was destroyed.  The Claggs were initially reported as unaccounted for until their bodies were found this morning.
