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.
