KOTA KINABALU: A mother and son were killed in a fire which destroyed their home in Tenom early Saturday.
Sabah Fire and Rescue Department operations chief Khatizah Rahaban said the victims, Wong Siu Mei, 46, and Wong Ka Seng, 8, were found side by side in a room upstairs.
"Their charred remains were discovered after firemen managed to bring the fire under control," she said in a statement.
