The Minneapolis Fire Department announced the city’s fourth fire death of 2023 after firefighters battled a house fire Tuesday in the Camden community.

Ronald Alvin White, 71, was found dead from smoke inhalation on the first floor of the house.

Fire crews went to 3942 Dupont Ave. N. around 8:20 p.m. for a call about a possible fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters observed fire that hadn’t yet extended from the first floor. They then discovered White who died on the first floor.

The department did not say if there were more people in the home when the fire started but did say no one else was hurt.

Cleanup crews are expected to board up the home now that the fire is out.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
