HOUSTON, Miss. - One teenager died and two were injured early Saturday in a camper fire in Chickasaw County.

Coroner Andy Harmon tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that a 16-year-old boy died. Those injured are 16 and 14.

Harmon did not immediately release their names.

He says they were first taken to Trace Regional Hospital in Houston, Miss., and then airlifted to a hospital in Jackson.

Chickasaw County Fire Investigator James Myers says the cause of the fire in the Arbor Grove Community has not been determined. It happened about 4 a.m. Saturday. Myers says one of the boys got out and ran to a neighbor's house.

This was the second fatal fire in Chickasaw County in a month.
