OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- State fire investigators are looking into the cause of a deadly Thanksgiving Day house fire in Lafayette County.

Coroner Rocky Kennedy tells Jachicka L. Knox, 22, died in the fire in the Tula community on County Road 436 around 9 a.m. Thursday morning.

Kennedy says Knox and her family lived in the mobile home.

Other members of her familiy were able to escape from the mobile home.

Kennedy says firefighters found Knox's body near a back bedroom.

He says the home was older and it appeared the fire spread quickly once it started.

He says foul play is not expected, but no official cause has been determined.
