Greendale Township Man Dies in Fire

State Police are investigating a fatal fire that happened Wednesday, December 9 in Midland County’s Greendale Township.

Firefighters and state troopers responded to the fire shortly after 4:00 p.m. on Volmer Dr. north of School Rd, after neighbors reported an explosion and fire at a trailer home. Investigators found the body of 78-year-old Kenneth Lily inside once the fire was out. They say it appears Lily was at the home to work on the furnace, after tenants had reported smelling gas.

Results of the fire investigator’s work and an autopsy are pending.
