The Missouri State Fire Marshal's office has taken over the investigation of the fire that took the life of a Cape Girardeau man.
James Stuart Weber was pronounced dead around 5:45 p.m., Monday. His parents found him in their garage after returning to their house on Big Bend Road. When Weber was unresponsive, they called 911 to provide medical attention, according to firefighter Andrew Juden.
It wasn’t until firefighters were on the scene that they discovered evidence of a fire.
