Montgomery's first fatal fire victim of 2011 identified

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery Fire Chief William Davis released the name of the city's first fatal fire victim of 2011 Friday.

Mark Denham, 44, was killed after a home on Avondale Court - just off Perry Hill and Harrison roads - went up in flames Thursday evening.

The fire started around 7:00pm and quickly engulfed the residence. Firefighters pulled Denham from the home, but he died a short time later. Two other people, identified as Denham's wife and son, were inside the home at the time of the fire but managed to get out.

A Montgomery Firefighter was also injured, but authorities said he would be ok.

Fire investigators believe the blaze was accidental in nature, though an investigation in under way. The fire apparently started in a bedroom.
