Maine Fatal Fire Likely Caused By Inhalants

The Maine State Fire Marshal's Office revealed that the car fire that proved fatal to a 34-year-old man was likely caused when fumes from an aerosol can were sparked by a cigarette.

From there, he was taken to Maine General Medical Center and then to Maine Medical Center, where he died.
