Harrison County’s coroner has released the identity of a woman killed in a house fire.

The body of 38-year-old Michelle Craite was found after firefighters were called to a burning house Tuesday morning. A Biloxi detective says nothing suspicious was found in the rubble. However, an investigation into the death was continuing.

Away from the fire scene, authorities searched for a man who may have been staying at the house in recent days. They hoped he could answer several questions about how the fire started.
