House Fire in Iron Mountain Claims One
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – An early morning house fire today in Iron Mountain has claimed the life of one man.
Police responding to reports of a strange odor in the area around 4 a.m. discovered smoke coming out of the residence at 1232 South Milwaukee Avenue and called the Iron Mountain Fire Department because the smoke prevented officers from entering the house.

An investigation by the State Police Fire Marshall is underway into the cause of the fire.
