CHINA, Maine — A local man died early Sunday morning after a fire ripped through his house in China.

Randall Luck, 65, was found dead by firefighters outside his lake front home at 13 Washington Boulevard, just off Mayflower Lane near Three Mile Pond, according to the Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland Sunday afternoon. Luck lived alone, McCausland said.

Firefighters responded to the blaze around 1 a.m. Sunday after a plow truck driver found the house on fire.

The Maine fire marshal’s office has determined that the fire started in the main section of Luck’s house, but a cause has not been determined, McCausland said.

Luck’s body was taken to the Maine medical examiner’s office.
