House fire kills boy, injures his mother

A Garden Grove woman was in stable condition Sunday, a day after a house fire left her critically injured and killed her 4-year-old son. Jennifer Howard, 28, was flown to Tampa General Hospital on Saturday after the fatal fire at 18005 Celia Ave. in Garden Grove, south of Brooksville. Howard's son, Christopher Acers, died in the fire. Two other residents, James Crowley, 43, and his son, 11-year-old Kevin, escaped the fire. Hernando County sheriff's officials and fire marshal's investigators expect to be able to release more information about the fire after an autopsy of the boy and further study of the scene.
