The fire started on Central Avenue in a garage that was converted into an apartment.

Thomas Reed Allen did not make it out in time. His dog also died in the fire.

Investigators do not suspect foul play, but officials say they are still looking into the fire's cause.

The coroner says Allen died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

    The neighbor said the guy kept talking about his heat not working, or that the converted garage was incorrectly heated. This is PRECISELY why Lexington code enforcement should crack down on these slum-lords and stop them from renting substandard housing to people. This guy probably died only because his landlord was a piece of trash who didn't want to put in an extra baseboard heater to heat the place, so the guy died using his stove or fireplace to heat it. How shameful and I think if this proves to be true, the landlord should face criminal charges for it.
