The fire happened on County Road 92 near Haleyville. Officials said the victim's family members discovered the fire around 11 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities said the man killed in the fire may have had health conditions which played a factor in him not being able to get out of the building at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is being investigated. The victim's body has been sent for an autopsy for positive identification.
