LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - Fire officials say a man trapped in a house fire has died in southwestern Ohio.

Authorities say the 66-year-old man lived with his mother in the home in Lebanon. Fire officials say she was able to escape the fire with help from a neighbor, but the man was not able to get out and died at the scene.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the man’s identity.

Fire officials say the house was fully engulfed in smoke when crews arrived around 2 a.m. Thursday. They were trying to determine what caused the blaze and said the state fire marshal’s office will be investigating.

Crews say the fire was mostly in a back bedroom of the home.

Lebanon is about 25 miles north of Cincinnati.
