Fatal Burke County Fire
Updated: Monday, February 4 2013, 09:02 PM EST
An elderly Burke County man was killed in a house fire this morning.
The fire swept through the 76-year-old man's residence in the Oak Hill community, west of Morganton.
Firefighters found his body just inside the front door, so they think he died while trying to get out of the burning house.
The fire marshal has called in the SBI to try and determine the cause of the fire.
