Authorities have released the identity of a 59-year-old man who was killed in a Lorton townhouse fire on Feb. 26.
Charles Ngeh was in the bedroom of the townhouse in the 9100 block of Aspenpark Court when the fire broke out.
Ngeh’s death is the county’s first fire fatality of the year. One other occupant was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Another fire broke out on Feb. 28 in a Lorton single-family house. While no one was injured, that fire caused roughly $125,000 in damages.
Fire investigators believe the incident was caused by smoking material that was discarded in a flowerpot on the home’s deck.
