The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/18No8w4) that 28-year-old Chandee Viengvilai died late Friday.
Fire crews responded to a blaze at the garage early that morning and found Viengvilai on fire and running through the yard.
His parents, 56-year-old Mearn Lee Pon and 50-year-old Bounkeo Viengvilai, were found dead inside the garage, which had been converted into living space.
