NUNNELLY, Tenn. -
The funeral for an elderly couple killed in a Hickman County fire last week will be held Saturday.
R.T. Rivers and his wife Ruby died after their home caught on fire last Friday morning. The Rivers' owned a big factory that caught fire in Hickman County in December, forcing residents to be evacuated from their homes.
The deadly house fire remains under investigation, but has been ruled a homicide after a K9 discovered an accelerant at the scene.
The couple is survived by their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchild.
