Approximately 45 Firefighters from Bay District, Hollywood and Valley Lee along with Lexington Park Rescue Squad responded to the Fox Chase Apartments in Great Mills in the 45900 block of Fox Chase Drive.
Crews arrived on scene and found nothing evident. Neighbors claimed to have heard an explosion and bystanders were yelling and pointing to a ground level apartment that a resident was trapped inside.
The man was in a chair in his living room next to cigarettes and the breathing tube of a home medical oxygen unit, according to authorities. The oxygen unit itself was in a bedroom, a spokesman for the state fire marshal said.
Most of the fire was confined to the living room of the two-bedroom apartment. Officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire and the man’s identity.
