Woman Dies In Fire

An elderly Biloxi woman died when her manufactured home caught fire Tuesday night. It happened on Baker Street, off of Pass Road and just west of Veterans Avenue. Investigators believe 76 year old Marian Embry lived alone. Her body was found on the floor, very close to the front door.

According to the fire department, it started just after 6 pm. Within three minutes of receiving the call, the first unit arrived. The entire front of the home was already engulfed in flames.

Investigators will be on the scene Wednesday trying to find out what caused the fire. An autopsy for Embry will also be done Wednesday.
