Man dies in house fire

Simsboro man perishes in his home

Felton Cockerham, 77, was believed to have been trying to get out of structure but was unable to do so, Chief Kevin Reynolds, with the Lincoln Parish Fire Protection District No. 1, said this morning. Cockerham was the only occupant of the house.
