Waterloo Man Dies in House Fire

Authorities Monday were attempting to determine the cause of a fire Sunday night that claimed the life of 51-year-old Kenneth Jacobson, 1216 Leavitt Street.

Fire Chief Harold Smith said he believed the fire broke out in a living room davenport and may have been started by a burning cigarette.

Smith said firefighters found Jacobson's body lying on the kitchen floor near the basement steps.

Jacobson, the chief said, apparently had been sleeping on a cot in a dining room, was awakened by smoke and attempted to flee but collapsed.

Officials said Jacobson apparently died of smoke inhalation although the upper portion of his body was burned. Chief Smith said the fire was reported at 10:44 p.m. by a neighbor who spotted curtains burning in the living room of the two-story frame structure.

The home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, the chief said.

The home sustained extensive damage to both the first and second floors, the chief said. Jacobson was alone when the fire broke out, the chief siad. His wife and children were reportedly in Harper's Ferry.
