ECHO, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama State Fire Marshal's Office says foul play is not suspected in an early morning house fire that killed a 23-year-old man near Ozark.

Volunteer firefighters in Dale County responded to the home in Echo after receiving a call around 3:15 Wednesday. James Bradley Strickland was the only one inside the mobile home when the fire occurred. Weather temporarily halted the ongoing investigation.
