Man dies in apartment fire in Marne

MARNE, Mich. --  A 51-year-old man has died in a Marne apartment fire that broke out Monday around 4:30 a.m.

Multiple crews responded to the reports of a fire at an apartment building, located at 14532 State Street and immediately began evacuating residents.

Crews on the scene tell FOX 17 that the bedroom of one of the units was in flames with the victim trapped inside. But the fire was confined to the one apartment, said Ottawa County Sheriff's Department Capt. Mark Bennett.

"Home oxygen was being used at the time. We don't know what role that may have played in the fire," said Bennett.

According to police, the 51-year-old lived alone in the apartment and suffered from prior medical conditions. He has been identified as David Fisher.

The Michigan State Police fire investigation team is investigating the fire.
