A press release states the remains of 59-year-old Carrie Motley and her son, 32-year-old Jacob Motley, were found in their home located at 300 Jefferson Street, Lot 15.
The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical in nature and the causes of death are believed to be caused by smoke inhalation.
A Missouri State Fire Marshall is on the way to Canton to investigate an overnight house fire that killed two people.
At this hour, we do not know the names, but we can tell you the fire happened at a trailer park near 3rd and Jefferson.
The silence of the overnight was shattered just before 1:00am by a roaring fire.
"It started at the corner and I called 911," said Marth Eichor.
Martha Eichor has lived here on and off for the last six years. She knew her neighbor and her adult son well.
"My son and her daughter is going to get married. I'm going to have a grandchild. And maybe that's the way things are just supposed to happen, but it don't make sense," says Eichor.
A lot of things are going through Eichor head.
"It's a shock to me because I just seen them last night," she said.
And she did all she could to try to save them.
"I called 911, and as soon as I got off the phone, I came over here and started banging on the windows for her and her boy to get up....and no response," said Eichor.
Eichor told me a lady lives here with her adult son. She says they had had electricity problems, and she believes had hired someone to fix the issues, but they hadn't shown up.
"We're needing prayers. She's a veteran. She has lots of loved ones in Illinois and Missouri. They were good people. It just breaks my heart," says Eichor.
Canton, LaGrange, and Monticello Fire Departments all responded.
A cause has not yet been determined.
