Identities Discovered in Fatal Malabar House Fire

The town of Malabar received a shock earlier in June when a fire consumed two-story house located at 855 Atz Road. The fire, which leveled the building, also took the lives of three individuals.

Due to the violent nature of the house fire, the bodies were at first unidentifiable. However, after consulting dental records, the authorities are now certain that the three individuals who perished in the June 11th fire were the 39-year-old Chrissy Hughes, her sister, the 39-year-old Linda Woods, and Hughes’ son, the 9-year-old Sebastian Meachum.
