BCFR says Mims fire that killed mom & son is “suspicious”

Brevard County sheriff’s agents are reviewing the deaths of a mother and her 12-year-old son following a Saturday morning residential fire In Mims.

The fast-moving fire swept through the family’s Kingswood Drive home. Brevard County Fire Rescue crews were called at 9:30 a.m. and battled the blaze and discovered the remains of an unidentified 40-year-old woman and a 12-year-old boy.

The state fire marshal was called in to investigate the origin of the fire. Homicide agents from the Sheriff’s Office also joined the investigation after being alerted.

“The fire was very suspicious, and I cannot provide additional details except to say this incident was turned over to the state fire marshal’s office and Brevard County Sheriff’s Office for investigation,” said Don Walker, spokesperson for Brevard County Fire Rescue.
