The Dallas County Sheriff’s office has released the name of the man killed in a mobile home fire early Monday morning.

The victim is 88-year-old Bob Spurling. He was the only person living in the Booneville home.

Neighbors say Spurling was using a space heater in order to conserve propane and they think that likely caused the fire.

The State Fire Marshal’s office is still looking into the exact cause of the fire.
