Late Night Fire Kills Calhoun County Man

A Clarksville man is dead after his mobile home goes up in flames overnight.

About 9:30 Wednesday night a call went out to the Clarksville Fire Department that a home on State Road 73 was fully engulfed by fire.

The owner, 49-year-old Brian William Cooley, could not be found.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office tells NewsChannel 7 once the fire was put out, Cooley’s body was discovered in the bedroom just 10 feet from the door.

Right now, investigators are ruling out foul play. It's tentatively being called an accident.

Investigators from the State Fire Marshall's Office are examining the fire scene.
