By:  Newsroom

A Dawes county official has released the name of a man whose body was found by firefighters battling flames in a Chadron apartment.

The body was that of 47–year–old Bradley Morris, who lived in the apartment.

An autopsy shows Morris died of smoke inhalation.

Fire crews were sent to the Old Blaine hotel a little after 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Fire officials say the blaze started on a couch, likely because of an unattended cigarette.
