OCALA, Fla. (AP) - The State Fire Marshal’s Office has ruled that a fire that killed a 9-year-old north Florida boy was accidental.

The fire broke out in a mobile home near Ocala last March.

The Ocala Star-Banner (bit.ly/21r8cpK) reports the boy’s mother, father, sibling and a roommate got out of the home. Firefighters found the body of James Atkinson Jr. in a bedroom.

Officials could not determine the cause of the fire, but ruled it was accidental.
