SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Scottsdale fire officials confirm a 57-year-old man died in the first structure fire death since 2007.

The Scottsdale Fire Department said Gene Dennison was in his mobile home located in the 8300 block of East McKellips Road when the fire broke out Oct. 12.

The fire caused $54,000 in damage to the home.

Scottsdale Fire Marshal Jim Ford said Dennison did not have a working smoke alarm.

"We estimate that in Scottsdale alone, there could be as many as 52,000 at-risk homes because the smoke alarms are 10 years or older," Ford said.
