WEMA Capt. Alan Kaiser said that while the fire is still under investigation by state fire investigators it is likely that Bingham died of smoke inhalation.

“Most of the time the smoke gets them first,” Kaiser said.

Tennessee Bomb and Arson Investigation Division Assistant Director Larry Dauberman said that Bingham’s body was taken to the state medical examiner’s office, where an autopsy was to be performed. He said department officials were expecting to hear something from the medical examiner on Tuesday. 

Dauberman said he had not spoken with State Fire Investigators Greg Whittaker and Andrew Kon, both of the Nashville office, as of Monday but expected a report from them in coming days.
