42-year-old Chris Buckley has been identified as the victim of the house fire in Mitchell. It is believed that the fire started in the bedroom near the bed.
Neighbors reported the fire at 813 Vincent Place just before midnight Friday, September 13.
The single-story home was fully involved when firefighters arrived.
They attempted CPR, but Buckley was pronounced dead at the scene.
The fire caused heavy damage to the home. The all steel construction of the home contained much of the heat to the interior, intensifying the damage. Because of the extensive damage the exact cause of the fire will remain undetermined.
