The Henderson County Coroner has identified a Hebbardsville man who was killed in an early-morning house fire on Monday.

64-year-old James Manion was killed on Monday in a fire on Bluff City Road in Hebbardsville, Kentucky, where he lived with his niece Elizabeth.

"He'd do anything for everybody and everybody knew it,” Elizabeth Butler said about her uncle James. "If you called him, he'd drop what he was doing in the middle of it and run and get you. He was always like that with me for a fact -- and he lived with me for five years. It was my uncle and one couldn't ask for a better person to be with."

Melvin Fulkerson, assistant fire chief with the Zion Fire Department, indicated that a wood burner could have been the cause of the fire.

While the Henderson County Coroner says Manion did die in the fire, his exact cause of death has not been released at this time.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
