BOSTON (AP) — Investigators have identified the man whose body was found in a basement after a house fire on Friday in Bellingham, Massachusetts.
The Worcester County District Attorney’s office said Saturday that the victim, Bruce J. LeBlanc, was a 51-year-old resident of the Rawson Road home where he died.
The district attorney’s office is now looking into what caused the fire but says it’s not considered suspicious.
Firefighters arrived at about 8:30 a.m. Friday, during frigid weather, after a neighbor called to report a fire in the suburban neighborhood just off Interstate 495.
They encountered heavy fire in the kitchen area. Dozens of firefighters from neighboring towns helped put out the fire, and a crew from nearby Woonsocket, Rhode Island, helped staff Bellingham’s fire stations.
