The cause of a fatal house fire over the weekend northeast of McLoud is still under investigation by the state fire marshal's office, officials said Thursday.

McLoud and Jacktown firefighters responded to the single-story house fire just after 5 a.m. Sunday south of 1060 Road and Range Road.

One person escaped the burning home, but a male decedent was found inside. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will make a positive identification of the victim and has yet to release any information.
