Officials have released the name of the man who died in Sunday’s fatal fire at Elm Point.

Paul Graber, 66, died Sunday after his trailer home caught fire between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m., according to Pittsburg County Undersheriff Richard Bedford.

“There’s no reason at this time to believe foul play,” Bedford said.

When asked if investigators have determined a cause for the fire, Bedford said that the fire was “due to propane tank heaters in the house that malfunctioned.”

Fire departments responded to a call of flames and smoke seen at a trailer home on Elm Point, near Blocker, according to Bedford.
