A man is dead after a house fire in Center Point.
Deputies responded to a fire Monday night in the 400 block of Woodland Court NE.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, fire crews told them a resident who escaped told them he had been in the basement and discovered his kitchen was on fire. A friend was staying with him and was asleep on the couch. He woke him up, and as they started to escape, the friend said he needed to get something out of the bedroom. He never saw his friend again.
The victim has not been identified.
The cause has not been determined; however, investigators believe it may have been caused by food left cooking on the stove.
