Man dies in Woodbrook house fire

Ada —  

     A 75-year-old Oakman resident died in a house fire early Wednesday morning in the Woodbrook housing complex.

     A Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputy was on the scene and pulled Charles L. Hughley Jr. from the burning home, said Rob Johnson, assistant fire chief on the A shift for the Ada Fire Department. Hughley was pronounced dead at the scene.

     Johnson said the state medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of the death, and the state fire marshal’s office is investigating what may have caused the fire.
