The family of the victims of the Walker County fire that left twin brothers dead is releasing the cause of death.

The family learned from the coroner's office that both Ryan and Ronnie Wagner died from smoke inhalation.

Brandon Thomison is the acting spokesperson for the family and said they are taking it one day at a time.

You may remember the Wagner brothers died the day after Christmas in Rossville, Georgia.

The Wagner family said it was just a normal holiday for the family.

Between work and celebrating, they say nothing could have prepared them for losing the Wagner brothers.

Thomison said when Ronnie returned home from work, he lied down. That's when the fire broke out killing both Ronnie and Ryan, who was also sleeping.

Thomison said the family is trying to cope with losing not one but two family members at once.

"We are living it day by day taking it step-by-step, obviously it's hard enough losing one loved one but two at the same time is very catastrophic, so we are trying to cope with it the best way we know how,” Thomison said.

Thomison said during the fire, the only exit in the home was blocked.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Ronnie and Ryan Wagner's mother, Connie Williams, remembers her boys as good men.

Brandon Thomison said, "they were just two precious souls, so joyful of life; there was never a dull moment with either one of them. There is never a dull moment in the family itself."

And never having a dull moment is what Thomison said keeps them strong and together.

The family said Lane's Funeral Home in Rossville will be handling the arrangements.

The family has set up a fundraiser on Facebook.
