Brothers die in mobile home fire

BONNIE — Two brothers died in a mobile home fire north of Bonnie early this morning.

The victims were identified as Gary Melton, 72, the owner of the mobile home, and his brother, 73-year-old Don Melton.

Firefighters were called to the residence in the 13000 block of East Davis Road shortly before 1:30 a.m., according to Chief Mike Huntman of the Jefferson Rural Fire Protection District. Huntman said the mobile home was fully involved when fire personnel arrived on the scene. The mobile home is considered a total loss.

Huntman said the cause of the fire is undetermined. The state fire marshal's office was called to investigate the fire, a common practice when there are fatalities, Huntman said, adding the fire is not suspicious.

The deaths are being investigated by the state fire marshal's office, State Police crime scene investigation unit, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the Jefferson County Coroner's Office.
