Two men killed in a Harford County fire early Sunday were identified yesterday by state fire officials, who continued to investigate the blaze.

Mohammed Afzal, 42, and Riaz Hussain, 44, died of smoke inhalation from the fire at the apartment they shared in the 1600 block of Denise Drive in Forest Hill, fire officials said. The men were from Pakistan and worked at a gas station.

The fire began at 5: 30 a.m. and forced one resident of the three-story, six-apartment building to jump from her apartment, breaking an arm. Damage to the building was estimated at $400,000.
