The victim of a fatal house fire over the weekend in Littleton, N.H. was identified Tuesday as Dusty Locke, 68, according to the state fire marshal’s office.
The cause and manner of death is pending further studies, the office said in a statement.
Police and firefighters responded to 12 Hilltop Manor Extension at 9:39 a.m. Saturday for a report of smoke, the office said in a statement Saturday.
An autopsy was scheduled for later Saturday.
According to real estate listings, the address is for a mobile home.
Police were the first to arrive at the scene, and when they entered the home, they found a person dead inside, according to the statement issued Saturday.
The fire self-extinguished before the fire department arrived, the statement said.
Littleton is a town in Grafton County in the White Mountains.
New Hampshire State Fire Marshal Sean P. Toomey reminds people that everyone should have working smoke alarms in their home.
“In the event of an alarm activation or visible smoke or fire, residents should immediately exit their home and call 9-1-1,” Toomey said in the statement. “Keep exits clear and accessible at all times and have a home fire escape plan. Anyone with questions about home fire safety should contact their local fire department or the NH State Fire Marshal’s Office.”
Anyone with information about the fire should contact the NH State Fire Marshal’s Office at (603) 223-4289 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, the statement said.
