BRUSLY - Investigators said a space heater is likely to blame for a deadly house fire in Brusly early Tuesday morning.

Family members said 76-year-old Verna Craig died in the fire, which started just after 5 a.m. at the home on Choctaw Road.

Fire marshals said they found the remains of a space heater they believe was too close to the victim's bed, and may have started the fire. They are still investigating to rule out any other possible causes.

News 2's Jason Newton spoke to the victim's family, and will have their story tonight starting at 4 p.m.
