Fatal RV fire under investigation in Marshall County

MCMECHEN, W.Va. — An Arkansas man was killed in an RV fire in Marshall County on Sunday.

The fire broke out just before noon on Industrial Park Road in McMechen.

McMechen police said Matthew Hall, 30, of Concord, Ark., was found dead when the fire department arrived.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire. Police Chief Allan Hoffer said there was minimal damage to the mobile home.

Hoffer said Hall was in the area for work. He said it’s likely Hall worked in the oil and gas industry.
