Love said his 42-year-old son, Brian, had mental health issues. According to Love, last night Brian had an outburst after losing his job. He stormed outside to his truck, and came back with his hands in his pockets. Then he barricaded himself in his bedroom, and minutes later his parents heard a series of "popping noises." Love said his son most likely set off fireworks. Moments later, smoke flowed through their home, setting off the fire alarm. By the time the fire department arrived, Brian's room was ablaze, and Brian was dead.

Charlie Love told KHQ he believes his son intentionally took his own life. He said his son's mental health issues had gotten worse the past few years.

"He could be nice a while and next minute he could be the opposite way," Love said.

Love said there was no stopping his son last night. Now he's left picking up the pieces of their home, wondering what went through his son's mind.
