Cullman County man killed in fire

CULLMAN — A Cullman County man was killed in a travel trailer fire early Friday morning near the Walter community.

Authorities say James Rodney Partain, 48, died at approximately 6 a.m. when the 20-foot camper trailer he lived in at County Road 703 caught fire. The Berlin and Walter volunteer fire departments responded to the call.

“As firemen began to fight the fire, they determined one person was deceased inside the trailer,” Cullman County Sheriff Mike Rainey said.

The Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, along with the State Fire Marshal’s Office, are both investigating. An autopsy has been conducted by the Alabama Department of Forensic Science, and Rainey said they do not suspect foul play at this time. The final results of the autopsy are still pending.
