FATAL FIRE: Charles City Man Killed


Investigators blame a cigarette for a fire that killed a Charles City man this week.

The body of 27-year-old Joshua Nelson was discovered inside his apartment building Monday afternoon.

Investigators say it appears a discarded cigarette caught a piece of furniture on fire on the porch. Strong winds pushed the fire inside.

The Red Cross is helping the other residents of the building.
