A man perished in a fire early Saturday evening, but authorities have yet to identify him.
The fire was contained to one apartment in an eight-unit complex on Collins Drive, a couple of blocks north of the main fire station on Legion Drive. Firefighters arrived around 6:40 p.m.
Fire Chief Phillip Mares said the fire had been going for a while when his department showed up. He said it’s possible it took a while for anyone to call because most people were at the annual Light Parade, which was just ending when firefighters got the call.
