Fatal Macon Co. fire ruled accidental

Posted:

Macon County, IL - A deadly fire in Macon County leaves questions behind.

55-year-old Charles Mathes died in the fire in January. During a coroner's inquest Wednesday morning, a jury ruled his death accidental. Mathes was alive for a short time during the fire. He died of smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire was ruled undetermined, though, meaning investigators can't say for sure what caused it.
