SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) - A Skowhegan man has died in a fire inside his mobile home.

Officials say the body of 53-year-old William Lashon was found inside the home Saturday afternoon by Skowhegan police. Officials believe he died sometime on Friday.

A relative and a neighbor had called police to check on Lashon who had not been heard from since Thursday’s snow storm.

Investigators say the fire was confined to a room that Lashon had converted into a theater room. Investigators believe the fire was caused by electrical wiring.

Officials say Lashon worked as a projectionist at the Strand Cinema in Skowhegan.
