Cause of Fatal Geneva Fire Determined

Officials with the state Fire Marshal's office say they've determined the cause of a fatal Geneva County fire.

The blaze on Campbell Road in Geneva killed one teenage boy and left another seriously injured.

Nineteen-year-old Jeffrey Hall was killed early Saturday morning, while spending the night at a friend's house with two other boys.

Everyone else escaped before the home was completely engulfed in flames. But the second boy was injured when he tried to re-enter the home to save Jeffrey.

The state Fire Marshal's office says the fire was apparently caused by an electrical malfunction that happened when a cook stove oven was used to heat the home.

Visitation for Jeffrey Hall will be from 6 to 8PM Tuesday evening at Bottoms Garden Funeral Home in Geneva.

Services will be held Wednesday at 2PM in the funeral home chapel.
