MARION, Ind. — An elderly man has died after a fire raced through his north central Indiana home.

Grant County Coroner Stephen Dorsey said that 82-year-old David Fox of Marion was pronounced dead in his home following the fire Sunday.

Witnesses tell WRTV-TV that smoke and flames from the fire became so intense so quickly that the man could not escape the blaze.

Marion is about 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
