BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The Bedford County Fire Marshal has released the cause of death in a fire that claimed a life along Nemmo Road last week.
The fire took place at 2194 Nemmo Road in the Vinton area of Bedford County. Four departments — including Bedford Fire Department — responded to the blaze just before 11 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9.
During its investigation into the fire, the Bedford County Fire Marshal’s Office discovered human remains inside the single-wide trailer, which was ruled a total loss.
According to Battalion Chief Leo George III, the cause of the fire and the identity of the victim have yet to be uncovered. However, George says there is no sign of foul play in either the fire or the death investigation and the Roanoke Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the cause of death as smoke inhalation.
