MOUNT FOREST TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 46-year-old man who had multiple sclerosis and used a wheelchair is dead following a house fire in Bay County.

WSGW-AM reports crews from several area departments responded early Thursday in Mount Forest Township. The Bay City Times reports the sheriff’s department identifies the man as Eugene R. “Chip” Shaw.

The fire appears to have started in an attached garage.

Authorities say two other people were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries. Shaw’s aunt Esther Doering, who described his medical issues, says he lived at the home with his wife, daughter and another man.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
