PIKEVILLE, BLEDSOE COUNTY, TN. (AP) - Bledsoe County authorities continue their investigation of a fatal house fire.

Sheriff's Investigator Ricky Seals said foul play has not been ruled out, but neither has anything suspicious been found at the scene of a July 25 fire that destroyed the home of 63-year-old Hazel Louise Reece. The home burned to the ground and authorities found the body of Reece inside it.

Reece told family members days before the fire that she found straw stuffed under her home and worried that someone would set it on fire, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Seals said on Tuesday that interviews were expected to continue through the week.
