NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - A wheelchair bound Natchez man died in a house fire.

Adams County Coroner James Lee tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1KdywRh) a firefighter dragged 63-year-old Lee Andrew Jones out of his house Thursday.

Lee says an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of Jones’ death.

Fire Chief Aaron Wesley said the victim lived alone, and no one else was injured in the fire.

Wesley says this is the first time in approximately seven years that Natchez has had a fatal fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
