CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Madison County say a body has been found in the fire-damaged home of a Mississippi filmmaker.

The home of Jim Dollarhide went up in flames Wednesday night. Mississippi media outlets report that the body found inside has not been identified.

Captain Robert Lehman with the Southwest Madison fire department said Thursday that Dollarhide’s family members say he has health issues and they haven’t been in touch with him since Wednesday.

Madison Sheriff Randy Tucker said an autopsy was planned.

Dollarhide’s credits include a documentary on blues musician B.B. King.
