Man dies after garage fire

Posted by wlpo on April 8, 2013

           A burning garage signaled trouble in Marseilles.  Someone driving by Merle Jelm’s home noticed the fire Saturday morning but by the time firefighters arrived it was too late. 

          The 75 year old homeowner was found dead after the fire was quickly put out. 

          It’s under investigation but police don’t think it was suspicious.
