SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - A 33-year-old Shippensburg man was killed early Tuesday morning in a fire that investigators believe started when smoking materials ignited a chair in the living room.
Jesse J. Stine II was found in the bathroom of the one-story wood frame home on 324 Airport Road after firefighters extinguished the blaze, Vigilant Hose Company Chief Danny Byers said.
Stine died from smoke inhalation, according to Cumberland County Coroner Michael Norris.
Though the cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation, Deputy Fire Marshall Nolan Brewbaker said he speculates smoking materials started the fire.
