House fire kills two, injures another

March 22, 2004

(Nashville-AP) -- A father and son were killed in a Sunday morning house fire in Berrien County that also sent a second son to the hospital.

The dead have been identified as 78-year-old Junius Rowe and his son, 50-year-old Johnnie Rowe. The third person, Tony Rowe, was taken to South Georgia Medical Center.

Nashville, Fire Chief Julian Warren says firefighters were called to the scene around 2:30AM Sunday.

Warren says four trucks and 15 firefighters responded to the scene and had the blaze under control by 5:00AM. The house, which was rented, was a total loss. Warren says a neighboring house had damage to its siding, which melted from the fire's heat.

 The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
