RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - Officials in Racine blame careless smoking for the death of a 61-year-old man in a house fire.

The victim was identified Wednesday as Mark Halonen.

Firefighters were called to his house just before midnight on Tuesday, when flames were spewing from the roof.

Once firefighters could get inside, they saw Halonen on a living room couch where the blaze began. He died of thermal injuries from the heat and flames.
