Austin Fire investigators with the help of firefighters and homicide detectives search the rubble of a house at 13125 Kellies Farm Lane Thursday morning to uncover the body of one person who died in the early morning fire that completely destroyed the house. Three other occupants of the house escaped unharmed in north Austin off of N. Mopac Expressway. This was the seventh Austin fire fatality this year. The previous six had no smoke detectors.
