An elderly woman and her son died early Thursday in a house fire in Garrett, south of Prestonsburg in Floyd County.
Terry Triplett, assistant fire chief of the Garrett Volunteer Fire Department, said firefighters from several area departments responded about 1 a.m. and found the son just inside the door.
"He was already deceased," he said.
The house was full of smoke. Extinguishing the fire took until about 3 a.m..

Firefighters then found the woman in her bedroom, where the fire appears to have started, Triplett said.
The names of the victims had not been released early Thursday.
Volunteer firefighters from Garrett, Maytown, Left Beaver and Southeast departments responded, Triplett said.
