A trailer fire takes the life of a man in Hammond; his name is yet to be released. The investigation revealed that the fire was started by the owner trying to heat up the trailer using an outdoor cooking burner. 

Fire Marshal Butch Browning explains that in the past month there has been an increase in the amount of fatal incidents with fire.

Browning says that although there are fire fatalities year round when the seasons change and the cold hits people tend to find unusual ways to keep warm.
