WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - The Wilmington Fire Department is investigating the cause of a fire that killed a man over the weekend.

Police tell area media outlets that the 54-year-old Steven Dale Worsham of Wilmington died in the fire late Sunday night. By the time fire crews arrived, the home was collapsing and firefighters could not get inside.

Officials say the fire is thought to have started in a bedroom. The home was being renovated and a neighbor reports hearing a boom when the fire erupted.
