A fire marshal’s office spokeswoman says an 83-year-old man may have been trying to fight the flames at his Louisiana home as it burned over the weekend.
News outlets report a man was found dead in the kitchen of a home in Cullen on Sunday morning.
The spokeswoman says a garden hose has been run through a window.
The nozzle was found next to the man’s body.
His name hasn’t been released.
Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
