ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man is dead following a fire in St. Petersburg.
Bay News 9 reports the fire apparently started in the garage early Friday and the smoke filtered into the house. Officials say the man was immobile inside the house and wasn't able to get out.
Fire crews told the television station they had difficulty reaching the man because there was so much debris inside. Officials believe he died of smoke inhalation.
No further details were immediately available.
