The fire was reported just after midnight Monday.
The woman was found near the front door and her husband was found upstairs. They were pronounced dead at a hospital. Their names have not been released.
Investigators tell The Record newspaper the fire began when an exposed wire rubbing against a heating vent in the basement caused an electrical arc.
The fire spread from the basement to the kitchen and dining room on the first floor.
