Fatal Fire Investigation Continues

Fire officials still haven't pinpointed the cause of a fire that killed two people in Lauderdale County over the weekend.

The fire happened late Apr. 19 in Toomsuba. Two people died. A third person was seriously injured.

Lauderdale County Coroner Clayton Cobler said Clyde Pendergrass and his 2-year old, grandson, Conner Pendergrass, lost their lives in the fire.

Investigators say they believe the fire might have started in the kitchen area, but they are still looking into exactly what caused it.
