BRYAN Brazos County's District Attorney spent Friday morning at the scene of a Bryan house fire believed to have been intentionally set early Monday morning.

A father and daughter were found dead.

It's another sign of a complicated investigation spanning at least 5 days so far, one that will likely last much longer.

Crime scene investigators continued sifting through the burned debris Friday where 32-year-old Noel Devin and her father, Thomas 'Mac' Devin were found.

D.A. Jarvis Parsons was there with other detectives and fire investigators.

He told News 3 that he was just trying to understand more on this case, but couldn't comment on any possible future charges against Dennis Wayne Brown, who is already charged with arson, burglary, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The fire broke out Monday morning in the 2000 block of Vinewood Drive.

The Devins were found inside hours after the initial call, and investigators with the Bryan Police Department say they know the cause of their deaths, but aren't yet ready to release that information.
