UPDATE: Update on Fatality House Fire from January 17

A house fire north of Columbus early Thursday morning claimed the life of 71 year old, Homer Dale Bristow, of the home.

An autopsy was conducted earlier today in Kansas City, and it was determined Mr. Bristow died from the "inhalation of products of combustion" caused by the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Kansas State Fire Marshall's Office and  the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office.
