Fatal Fire in Washington DC May Have Been Caused by an Oxygen Tank

Last week, a man died in a fire in Washington D.C. After an investigation, it has been determined that an oxygen tank may have been the reason for the fatal accident.

On Thursday October 18, 2012, a fire had begun at the house of sixty five year old George Michael III. The fire started at around 3:30am on the second floor of Michael’s house. Michael was immediately taken to the hospital where he later died of a heart attack.
