Beloit fire claims a life
Beloit Firefighters are investigating the cause of a fatal blaze late Wednesday morning.
Lieutenant Matt Robson says when firefighters arrived at 946 Grant Street, they found smoke coming from the eves on all sides of the single story home. Upon entering the home, they found the single occupant unconscious on the floor. He seemed to revive briefly outside the home, but later died. The fire was contained to a single room.
No working smoke detector was found.
