Man dies in fire tonight on Youngstown's South Side


A man died Saturday night after a fire consumed a home on the city's South Side.

Youngstown Fire Chief John J. O'Neill Jr. said the man, whose identity was not immediately known, was found on the first floor. He said the fire appeared to have started near the kitchen.

Firefighters responded to a call shortly after 10 p.m. at 29 Williamson Ave., just a block east of Market Street.

O'Neill described the house as containing "a lot of debris," which could have attributed the fire's stubbornness.

It took about one hour for firefighters to put out the blaze.
