Fatal Fire 

A 49-year-old man is dead after a fire destroyed his Palmyra home.

It happened around 3 a-m Saturday on the Pittsfield Road.

A passerby reported the fire…by the time crews arrived, the single-story house was engulfed in flames.

State Fire Marshal’s invesigators say Stephen Micheller was killed in the fire.

His body was found in the rubble in the basement.

Investigators say it’s unlikely they’ll ever be able to determine the cause of the fire, since the entire structure collapsed into the basement.
