HELENA - Authorities say a 90-year-old man died in a house fire east of Radersburg this week.

Broadwater County Sheriff Brenda Ludwig said Floyd Poe called 911 just before 10 p.m. Tuesday to report a fire in the ceiling of his home.

"When our deputy responded, he (Poe) was not outside of the residence," Ludwig said. "He never made it out."

The one-story residence, which appeared to be the original farmstead, was badly damaged. The state fire marshal is investigating the cause of the blaze.
