A man and his son are dead following Tuesday’s mobile home fire in Union County. 

Firefighters were dispatched to the blaze in the 300 block of Adams Street in Uniontown at about 5:30 Tuesday morning.

They extinguished the flames and found two bodies inside the mobile home.

In a news release, Kentucky State Police identified the victims as 68-year-old Charles Shockley and his son, 41-year-old Jesse Shockley.

The KSP said detectives were “actively investigating” the blaze but they said “nothing appears suspicious.”

The fire destroyed the home.

Autopsies were conducted Tuesday in Madisonville.

The fire happened four days after another mobile home fire in Union County that claimed 4 lives.
