He was pretty much a loner. He kept to himself and had no visitors,” neighbor Cary Lunog said. “He’d go to the library. I’d see him at the library or at the local market.” Neighbors said he spoke a foreign language, perhaps Russian. “He was a kind of isolated type of individual,” neighbor Ray Harp said. The cause of the fire was under investigation, and the death was being investigated by Los Angeles County homicide detectives. “Because of the fatality, sheriff’s homicide investigators are investigating. But that’s routine,” Hurd said. LAKE LOS ANGELES – Firefighters responding to an early morning house fire Monday found the body of a man inside a bedroom. The blaze broke out in the single-story home at 1:41 a.m. in the 40900 block of 173rd Street East. The house was destroyed. “(Firefighters) initiated the fire attack, and while doing that, discovered one fatality,” Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Jason Hurd said. “He was the only person inside the structure.” Neighbors said the man who lived in the house was in his 50s and had lived there for at least 10 years. They described him as a loner who told them to call him Gino. Fire units responding to the blaze found the house fully involved in flames. Firefighters found the body on a bed, Hurd said. Fire crews had the fire knocked down in about 12 minutes, Hurd said. (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
