Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton said it appears the March 16 fire at the 1147 Mountain View Road home where Jonathan Pesterfield perished appears to be accidental.
“At this time it is what it appears to be,” said Stockton.
Stockton said the story given by Lydia Vasquez and Joshua Cody Walker to detectives cleared up what happened.
“Their stories matched up,” said Stockton.
Stockton said the trio were at the vacant home to do drugs.
