BATESVILLE, Miss. (AP) – Authorities say a house fire in Panola County has killed a man and his adult son.

Daniel Cole, director of emergency management for Panola County, says the fire burned a two-story house in the Curtis Station Community of rural Panola County.

Panola County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Gerald White says 85-year-old L.J. Morrow and his 55-year-old son, Carl Morrow, died in the fire.

White says L.J. Morrow’s daughter escaped from the burning house.

White says “he can’t rule out” electrical problems as a possible cause. White says relatives and members of the victims’ church told investigators that the family had complained of wiring problems.

Cole says a firefighter injured by falling debris was treated at a hospital and released.
