Riverview Apartment Fire Leaves Man Dead
A Riverview, Missouri, apartment fire Sunday morning has left a man dead. The victim reportedly died of smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in his apartment in the 9600 block of Diamond just after 5:00am. He was found in a doorway between the bedroom and living room by fire crews battling the blaze.
Riverview Fire Department Chief Joe Bommarito believes unattended cooking may have led to the fire.
The fire did not spread to other apartments in the building.
