84 Year old Margaret Scott and her 69 year old son Joseph died in an overnight fire in Grosse Tete.

It happened just before 3:30 at their home on Gardner Lane.

The State Fire Marshall says though firefighers were able to put the fire out quickly - they weren't able to rescue the Scott's in time.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

There was a smoke detector in the house, but there were no batteries in it.
