A structure fire in Mineral Wells Tuesday morning resulted in the death of the resident of the house in the 300 block of Northwest Third Street in Mineral Wells.
By press time, officials had not released the identity of the man pending notification of next of kin.
"We haven't made contact with family," said Mineral Wells Fire Chief Mike Poole Tuesday.
However, Thursday, Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace Bobby Hart identified the man as Johnny Lee Morton, 54.
"It was a two-story older home, ship-lap construction," said Poole . "It went pretty fast."
He said the call was received about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday.
Poole said the fire appeared to be accidental.
"We're investigating it," he said. "It doesn't seem to be suspicious."
Firefighters continued to monitor the location for hot spots through the day Tuesday. Poole said no other structures were damaged.
