INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Investigators have identified a man killed in a Wednesday morning house fire.
Randy Martin died when his home on Union Hill Road in Thida went up in flames around 7:30 a.m.
Independence County Sheriff Shawn Stephens told Region 8 News that foul play is not suspected.
However, he said they are still investigating the cause of the fire.
"It appears that it started in the living room but like I said, it's still ongoing and we don't have it finalized yet," Stephens said.
Martin's body is being sent to the Arkansas State Crime lab for analysis.
The Thida-Union Hill and the Oil Trough Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the blaze.
Thida is located about four miles south of Oil Trough.
