RV Death - 9/13/19

ANTIOCH, TN (WSMV) - One man is dead after an overnight RV fire on the 100 block of Cummings Court in Antioch.

According to investigators on scene, the call went out around 1:30 a.m. A witness told investigators he saw smoke coming from the RV and called the fire department.

911 operators received multiple calls about the fire, and were able to dispatch Nashville Fire, who arrived within 5 minutes. 

When the fire crews arrived, they saw fire coming from the RV, and made an immediate, aggressive attack on the fire to prevent the flames from spreading nearby.

The RV was parked at the end of a dead end street near a concrete business. As firefighters were putting the flames out, they found a man dead in the back of the RV.

That man has been identified as 47-year-old Michael Sean Carroll. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
