Elderly man killed in Manitowoc fire

A house fire in Manitowoc claimed the life of a 90-year-old man, and investigators will look to see whether the bitter cold may have been a factor.

Interim Chief Gregg Kadow says they'll try to figure out if he was using alternate heating sources in the home. Arnold Goeke died at a hospital, after firefighters pulled him from the house.

Kadow says there's fire damage to the basement and first floor, and smoke damage throughout the rest of the building.

Goeke died from carbon monoxide poisoning, and smoke inhalation.
