WASHINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Investigators believe a fire that killed a Kanab man was ignited accidentally after he poured an accelerant through the two bedrooms and the hallway of his Washington mobile home.
Brian Walcher, 57, was found dead in his mobile home on Sunday.
Washington County Sheriff Kirk Smith said the accelerant appeared to have ignited prematurely, probably from a pilot light.
A melted gas can was found near Walcher's body.
