Man Dies In Marshall County Fire

Marshall County, Ms

Marshall County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a deadly fire that happened just after midnight Friday on Tunstall Road.

Investigators said two people were inside the house.

A woman was able to escape through the back door. However, a 55-year-old man was found dead inside the living room.

The woman told investigators that her uncle woke her up saying “there was a fire and for her to get out”.

She said when she made it to the front of the house he was not outside.

Investigators think the man died of smoke inhalation, but are not sure of the exact cause of death.

The fire is still under investigation.
