Marshall Interim Fire Chief Reggie Cooper tells us just before 2 p.m. a neighbor called about flames coming from a home in the 2300 block of Sledge Street.
The homeowner, a man in his late forties, was found inside a small bedroom. His body was sent off for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
Fire investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
