Lincoln man dies in fire

GILPIN, Ernest

STANFORD - Lincoln County's coroner said a Stanford man was pronounced dead after his bed caught fire Sunday night. Ernest Gilpin, 60, of 129 Shea Villa Court, was suspected to be smoking in bed in the apartment where he lived alone. "He was also hooked up to an oxygen tank, and the two don't mix very well," Coroner Bill Demrow said.

Fire Chief Kenny McDaniel said the call came in about 7:30 p.m. from a neighbor. Firefighters were able to pull Gilpin out of the burning room shortly after they arrived, McDaniel said, but the victim already was dead. Gilpin was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:15 p.m., Demrow said, after the Stanford Fire Department was able to contain the fire to the victim's bedroom, mostly to his bed. The fire had not spread to any other rooms of the victim's apartment nor to any other areas of the apartment building. Demrow said Gilpin was found on the bedroom floor and died of carbon monoxide poisoning - or smoke inhalation. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at Stith Funeral Home, Danville.
