HAMILTON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - A family of three is dead after a fire broke out in Hamilton County.

Sheriff Harrell Reid says it happened around midnight Friday on Southwest 57th Lane, which is a few miles outside of Jasper.

Authorities believe the fire started in the back of the family's mobile home. They think the fire was accidental not intentional, but it is being investigated by the state fire marshal's office. 

The sheriff says of the three people killed two were children, a 7-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, and their mother. 

The mother has been identified as Morgan Gause.
