An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday for a New Iberia woman found dead inside a burning home, according to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
Firefighters discovered the body of Amber L. Callahan, 45, inside a mobile home at 7310 Joe Viator Road that was engulfed in flames and partially collapsed because of the fire, a news release states.
Callahan’s boyfriend, 53-year-old Eugene Haley, who also lived at the home, was treated for injuries he suffered when trying to enter the burning home.
Although fire investigators have determined where the fire originated, they “continue to piece together the cause of the fire,” said Deputy Chief Brant Thompson.
The investigation is ongoing.
