LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Three people were found dead after a home was destroyed by fire overnight.

Emergency crews pulled the bodies from the house on County Road 81 in the Central Heights community Thursday morning. They are being sent to forensics for an autopsy and identification.

The victims have been preliminarily identified as Bobby and Sandy Brewer and their nephew, Bradley Adams. One body was found in the bathtub, another near the back door, and the third in the kitchen area.

The fire department was called around 3 a.m. Crews said when they got on scene the home was fully engulfed with flames, leaving crews piles of debris to comb through.

The home was completely destroyed.

Family has said the Brewers had been married for 47 years and leave behind a big family full of grand kids and great grand kids.

Their nephew, Bradley Adams, was also in the home leaves behind a 9-year-old son.

Investigators say deadly fires are not just hard on the family members but hard on everyone involved, especially when they happen in close knit communities like Central Heights.

At this time, officials believe the fire started in the kitchen area, but they said it is still too early in the investigation to know for sure.

No foul play is suspected at this time and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
