BROWNWOOD, Texas - Three people died when flames swept through a mobile
home at a Central Texas lakefront development.
The fire happened about 3 a.m. Monday just off Texas Route 279 in the
Shamrock Shores subdivision, about a half-mile from Lake Brownwood. Brown
County sheriff's Capt. Tony Aaron identified two of the dead as 43-year-old
Eddie Jowers and 42-year-old Denman Cain Jr. The identity of a woman found dead
is being withheld until it can be verified.
Sheriff Bobby Grubbs says the cause of the fire remains undetermined, but an
electrical short is suspected.
Grubbs says Jowers lived in the trailer and that Cain was a guest at a party
that lasted into Monday's pre-dawn hours.
