Funeral Arrangements Set For Jackson Teen Killed In Fire

EAST JACKSON, Tenn. - Funeral arrangements for a Jackson teen killed in a weekend fire will take place Saturday Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. at Greater St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church.

Seventeen-year-old Tyrone Sterling was home alone at a duplex on Carolane Drive when the fire began. Investigators believe the fire started in the living room area.

Sterling was transported to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and was later pronounced dead. The official cause of death has not yet been determined.

According to Jackson Fire Chief Max Stewart, fire investigators and police investigators have not found any smoke detectors.

Jackson Central Merry Principal Dr. Michael Booker says they plan to do something later this week to remember Booker.
