Latimer house fire kills one


A Jackson County resident is dead following a house fire Saturday night.
Sixty-two year-old Lela Miller was pronounced dead after a house on Theriot Avenue in the Latimer community went up in flames.
Firefighters entered the house, but the heat forced them out. Two firefighters were injured and one was hospitalized overnight.
Sheriff Mike Ezell said the fire did not appear suspicious, but the state marshal’s office would be conducting an investigation because a death was involved.

Payton Malone grew up in the small town of Archer City, Texas before moving to Norman, Oklahoma where he attended the University of Oklahoma. During his time at OU he interned as a meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City where he experienced all types of weather ranging from tornadoes, flooding and winter storms. Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in Meteorology. Payton's interest in weather began at the very young age of six after a local broadcast meteorologist talked to his class about preparing for severe weather. That along with growing up in the middle of Tornado Alley, Payton has been hooked to the weather ever since. He is excited to move to the Gulf Coast and start a new adventure away from the plains. He loves venturing around the area finding new coffee shops, local places to eat, and he looks forward to being involved in the communities on the Mississippi coast.
