Investigators Tell Family Members Granddaughter Set Fire That Killed Grandparents

Investigators on Thursday told the son of two people who died in a Lincoln County fire Wednesday night that the granddaughter of the couple is suspected of setting the fire because she was upset with her grandparents.

Dispatchers say they got a call for help around 11 p.m., saying a mobile home on Joe McMullin Road was on fire. The caller, the granddaughter, made it out, but Everett Garland, 64, and Linda Garland, 60, were killed in the blaze.

Firefighters say they think the fire started in the home's living room and spread into the attic. Kentucky State Police detectives and arson investigators are continuing to investigate.

The granddaughter, who is 16-years-old, has been charged with two counts of murder and one count of arson.
