Henry family member dies in La. fire

BELLE CHASSE, LA (FOX19) - A family member of Chris Henry has died in a fire in Henry's hometown of Belle Chase, La.

According to several local media outlets, Larry Hicks, 55, died when his mobile home caught fire Monday morning. Five other members of his family escaped the fire.

Family members told WDSU in New Orleans that it's a tragic start to their new year after they've had to bury several family members in recent weeks, including Henry.

Henry, a former wide receiver with the Bengals, died last month in North Carolina when he fell out of a truck driven by his fiancee.
