St. Louis Park Man Dies in Fire
The Star Tribune reported a St. Louis Park man died in a house fire Friday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to a house on Alabama Avenue after a neighbor called 911 reporting smoke and flames coming from the house around 1 p.m. said St. Louis Park spokesman Jamie Zwilling.
A man was found by the firefighters lying in the first floor bedroom, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
It took crews about three hours to extinguish the fire which was believed to have been started near the kitchen area of the house, and is still under investigation said Zwilling.
The Pioneer Press reported that the Hennepin County Medical Examiner announced in a statement Saturday that Thomas C. Holden, 56, died from smoke inhalation.
