The man who died in a Feb. 4 house fire in Superior has been identified as Daniel William Dodge, 52, the Superior Police Department said Tuesday, Feb. 11.
Officer Bradley Jago said the cause of the fire remains under investigation, but nothing criminal is suspected.
Douglas County is waiting on autopsy results before determining a cause of death, said Darrell Witt, county medical examiner.
A passerby saw smoke coming from the home at 2532 E. Second St. and called 911 at 10:22 p.m.
Firefighters didn't have an exact address when they were called out, which delayed how quickly they responded to the scene, said Superior Fire Chief Scott Gordon, during a press conference after the fire.
When they found the home, a neighbor told them someone lived there and that his vehicle was still in the driveway. Firefighters found Dodge in the burning building and got him outside.
They started lifesaving efforts and transferred him to Mayo Ambulance. Emergency personnel were not able to resuscitate Dodge.
The fire department spent approximately three hours extinguishing the blaze. The home was a total loss.
Gordon said there weren't any audible smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors in the house.
