Man dies in St. Paul garage fire

ST. PAUL (AP) — Officials say a man has died in a garage fire in St. Paul.

Firefighters say crews found the unattached garage fully engulfed in flames by the time they arrived early Thursday morning. Authorities believe the 55-year-old victim lived in the garage.

St. Paul Fire Chief Steve Zaccard tells KARE-TV the victim's deceased mother had owned the garage and home, which is up for sale.

Zaccard says investigators haven't pinpointed a cause of the fire, but are looking at a space heater.
