Elderly man dies in house fire
State fire investigators said yesterday that an electrical failure started a house fire that killed a Dorchester County man.
The fire started at about 7 p.m. Saturday in a one-story home on Linthicum Drive, according to the State Fire Marshal's office. Firefighters arrived to find James Leland Smith, 73, dead on the living room sofa. He was the only person home at the time.
Investigators say the fire started in the kitchen and was caused by an electrical failure in a wall receptacle that provided power to the home’s refrigerator. Firefighters needed about 20 minutes to extinguish the flames. The damage is estimated at about $100,000. A smoke alarm was found, but there was no battery inside, officials said.
