Police Investigate Fatal Fire

A state police fire marshal was trying to determine the cause of a house fire that killed a 77-year-old man in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Authorities say 77-year-old James Robbins died in the fire, which was reported about 3 a.m. Saturday in St. Mary's. That's about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Robbins' 69-year-old wife, Joan, was able to escape the flames.

A state police fire marshal had not announced a cause of the blaze by Sunday.

Damage was estimated at $100,000.
