Couple and dog found dead in car

A Victorian couple and their dog have been found dead in a car, apparently killed by a gas heater they were using to keep warm.

Police say the 27-year-old man and 24-year-old woman, both from Ballarat, were believed to have been living in the car, and a butane gas heater they were using to keep warm may have contributed to their deaths.

Officers found the bodies when they checked on the car parked at Cardigan, near Ballarat, on Friday night.

The deaths are not being treated as suspicious, and will be referred to the coroner.
