Man Killed In Early Morning House Fire

An early morning house fire in Cherokee County has claimed the life of a 53-year-old man.

Sheriff's officials say James Byron Norwood stayed with relatives in the Shady Brook subdivision near Lake Palestine. They say he lived in a 12-by-8-foot wooden shack outside his relatives' home. That's where his body was found.

The sheriff suspects the fire was caused by an overloaded electrical outlet and says he does not suspect foul play.
