Man Dies In Weekend Blaze Near Ely

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 6:05 am

An Ely man is dead after a house fire broke out on Monday at a home north of town.

The blaze was initially reported at 5am Monday at a cabin on Greenstone Lake. Authorities told WDIO that two 49-year-old men were in the house when the fire started, but only one escaped.

Once responders were notified, they were unable to get to the burning house as it wasn’t connected to any roads. Officials told WDIO that the structure burned to the ground and killed the man inside.

The name of the victim is not being released at this time.
