CANTON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have identified the victims killed in a mobile home fire in northeast Missouri.

The fire that broke out early Monday in Canton killed 59-year-old Carrie Motley and her 32-year-old son, Jacob Motley. Lewis County Coroner Larry Arnold says an electrical issue is believed to be the cause of the fire, but an investigation continues.

Arnold says the victims appeared to die from smoke inhalation.

Canton Fire Chief Joe LaCount says the home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived just before 1 a.m. Monday.
