Fatal Fire Claims Life of Putnam County Man

Authorities say further investigation is needed, but they believe an electrical problem may have started a fatal fire at a log cabin on Mirandy Road early Tuesday. The blaze was reported at a small cabin located behind Bruce Baranowski's home, and officials say they believe Baranowski perished in the blaze. The fire apparently started in a living room area and was later reported by a passerby who saw smoke and called 911. The Algood fire department was able to put out the blaze, which left the cabin gutted.
