DECATUR, Ark. (KFSM) — A Decatur man was killed Sunday after a fire in his motorhome, according to police.

Decatur firefighters were called around 10:30 a.m. Sunday for a fire on 403 Rooster Street, where they found a motorhome on fire behind a home.

Firefighters extinguished the fire and found the body of Ronnie Spence, 41, inside. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with funeral expenses and other family needs.

The Benton County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.

Officials said the motorhome was non-operational and space heaters had been used inside the vehicle, although it's unclear if they played a role in the fire.
