Skowhegan Man Dies in Fire inside Mobile Home
SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) — A Skowhegan man has died in a fire inside his mobile home.
Officials say the body of 53-year-old William Lashon was found inside the home Saturday afternoon by Skowhegan police. Officials believe he died sometime on Friday.
A relative and a neighbor had called police to check on Lashon who had not been heard from since Thursday's snow storm.
Investigators say the fire was confined to a room that Lashon had converted into a theater room. Investigators believe the fire was caused by electrical wiring.
Officials say Lashon worked as a projectionist at the Strand Cinema in Skowhegan.
