Fatal Fire in Claiborne County Ruled Accidental

One person is dead after a fire in a small RV in Claiborne County.

Firefighters were called to the home on McMurray Street near the intersection with Tipton Avenue in Tazewell around 4:00pm Tuesday after a police officer noticed smoke.

The fire was not coming out of a home, but the camper vehicle behind it.
The Tazewell fire chief says they found the body of 81-year-old Carl Hunt inside after the fire was extinguished.

Investigators say the fire is being ruled accidental.
