PROVIDENCE (KATV) -

A 14-year-old boy has died in a house fire early Sunday morning in White County.

According to White County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Phillip Miller, just after midnight, volunteer fire crews responded to the 300 block of Graham Road in Providence for reports of a mobile home on fire.

A 10-year-old and 16-year-old got out of the house safely, but told emergency responders their 14-year-old brother was still inside.

After crews put the fire out, a body was found in the bedroom.

Officials are not releasing the names of the children. The victim reportedly attended White County Central Junior High School.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

The victim's body was taken to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for an autopsy.
