TITUSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says a disabled man has died of smoke inhalation after a fire at his apartment building in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell says 79-year-old Harold Willman died in the fire early Monday in Titusville. That’s about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Titusville fire Chief Harry Caldwell says Willman lived in a first-floor apartment where the fire was reported about 2:20 a.m. The fire started in the dining room and was caused by an electrical problem.

The chief says five other people lived in other units but were able to get out safely. Three other apartments suffered light smoke damage.

The chief says the same apartment burned after an electrical problem about five years ago. He says the building is insured.
