Summerdale house fire leaves one dead


Fire investigators are trying to determine what sparked a house fire that killed a man in Summerdale this morning.

The blaze broke out sometime before 1:40 a.m. in a three-story twin on Roosevelt Boulevard near Langdon Street, said fire spokesman Chief Daniel Williams. Firefighters found heavy smoke pouring out of the second-floor but got the fire under control by 2:17 a.m., Williams said. The home had at least one hard-wired smoke alarm, but it did not activate, Williams said.

The victim remains unidentified.
