Mom, Young Son Killed in Claysville, Pa. Farmhouse Blaze

CLAYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) -
A young mother and her 5-year-old son have reportedly been killed in a farmhouse fire in southwestern Pennsylvania.
     
Authorities say 28-year-old Lisa Hewitt and her son, Timothy Jr., were found dead early Monday.
     
Washington County emergency dispatchers say Hewitt called 911 to report that she and the boy were trapped on the second floor of the burning home in Buffalo Township. The call then disconnected.
     
The woman's husband also lives at the home but was not there when the fire was reported about 11 p.m. Sunday. Authorities say he collapsed when he arrived at the scene and was told what occurred.
     
Investigators were still trying to determine what caused the fire Monday, but say the cause does not appear to be suspicious.
