Father And Son Killed In Mobile Home Fire

An eastern Kentucky family is in shock after a mobile home fire kills two people.

Investigators now say that deadly fire is suspicious. The father and his three-year-old son may have been the victims of a crime.

Investigators with the state fire marshal's office were at the scene for much of the day on Wednesday on Highway 52 in Breathitt County, just west of Jackson.

The victims have been identified at 43-year-old Wayne McIntosh and his young son, Denver.

We talked to the grandmother of 3-year-old Denver McIntosh.

"He was a playful kid. He loved coming down here and playing," Edith Williams said.

The little boy, who loved horses and toy trucks, was found dead in the burned out home, beside his father's body.

Edith Williams says Wayne McIntosh is the third child she's lost.

She dropped her son and grandson off at home less than two hours before the fire.

She remembers Denver falling asleep on the way home, and McIntosh laying the little boy down on the couch before she left them.

By the time firefighters got to the scene, the trailer was already fully engulfed.

Family members tell us McIntosh also lived here with a girlfriend, but she was not home at the time of the fire.

Visitation for Wayne and Denver McIntosh is Saturday from 11 to 2 at Newnam Funeral Home in Beattyville.

A funeral for both will start immediately after-wards, at 2.
