OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Officials say a 52-year-old man from Miami died in a house fire in a northeastern Oklahoma county.

The Miami Fire Department identified the deceased as Dennis Joe Grower. The city’s fire chief says firefighters found Grower’s body about two feet away from the back door in his Ottawa County home.

The cause of the home fire remains under investigation, but authorities don’t suspect foul play in the early Wednesday morning blaze.
