Smoking appears to have caused the Monday afternoon fire that killed one person and a dog, fire officials said Tuesday.
â€œWeâ€™re not positive yet, but (the cause of the fire) could be smoking in the living room,â€ Oak Ridge Fire Chief Darryl Kerley said.
Kerley said the victimâ€™s body was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for an autopsy and identification. The victim appeared to be a man, he said.
Oak Ridge Assistant Fire Chief Josh Waldo said Tuesday afternoon that the victim died in the fire.
