Defuniak Fire Fatality

Officials are still trying to figure out what caused a mobile home fire in Northwest Florida that left one man dead.

Flames engulfed the three bedroom home along Martin Road in the Liberty Community which is several miles North of Defuniak Springs.

Cheryl Marlow and her 12-year-old son were visiting relatives at the time of the fire, but her husband, Ricky Marlow was inside.

Firefighters say the 37-year-old may have became disoriented in the smoke. His body was found in the hallway just outside the front door.

The Marlows didn't have insurance on the mobile home. The State Fire Marshal’s office has not given a cause for the fire.
