A local man died in a house fire early today in the 200 block of Tanner Street in Ebensburg.
Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski did not release the identity of the 26-year-old man pending notification of family members.
A woman at the residence was transported to Memorial Medical Center for smoke inhalation, the coroner said.
Cambria 911 said that firefighters were dispatched at 2:12 to the residence. Reportedly, the victim was in an apartment on the second floor. Dauntless Volunteer Fire Company is the lead company.
A state police fire marshall has been called in to investigate. Kwiatkowski said that the preliminary cause appears to have been electrical in nature.
