BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Officials with the Blytheville Fire Department say a fire Wednesday morning claimed the life of one person.

Around 7 a.m. the fire department responded to a house fire in the 200-block of Dougan Street.

It took 20 members about an hour to knock down the flames, which sent heavy plumes of smoke into the air.

When they entered the home, firefighers found one person dead in the kitchen area where the fire is believed to have started. No one else was in the home at the time.

The fire marshal is investigating the scene to determine the cause.

The victim has not been identified pending the notification of family members.
