Turbeville man found dead in fire

SoVaNow.com / September 20, 2012
A home health worker making a routine visit to a client on U.S. 58 near Turbeville arrived Thursday about noon to see smoke through the window and, when she opened the door, so much smoke that she could not get inside.

The woman called 911, and firefighters from the Turbeville and Cluster Springs fire departments arrived. One firefighter went inside to find James R. "Jinx" Jennings on the floor beside his bed. The bed had some fire damage, and the rest of the house sustained $2,000-$3,000 in smoke damage, according to the fire report.

The body has been sent to the state medical examiner in Richmond for an autopsy, according to Halifax County Emergency Services Director Kirby Saunders. Foul play is not suspected, however. It is suspected that he died of smoke inhalation.

Jennings, who lived alone, is survived by a daughter, Liza Jennings of Richmond.
