Autopsies completed after the devastating cabin fire that killed a family of five in Brinnon “revealed no indicators to suspect foul play,” said Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Haas.
“It’s shaping up to look like a horrible accident,” he said Tuesday afternoon.
Haas said more information from the autopsies would be released after he had spoken to the victims’ family members. Jenny and Jerry Drake, both 42, and their three boys, 11, 8 and 2, were killed in the cabin blaze early Sunday morning.
The family, from Monroe, had used the cabin as a regular weekend getaway. Neighbors said other members of their extended family also kept cabins on the premises and sometimes gathered there. Family members reached after the fire said they did not want to comment on the difficult event.
