MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A man killed in a Madison apartment fire has been identified as 51-year-old Christopher Williams.
An autopsy showed that he died from smoke inhalation and thermal injuries.
Firefighters were called to a south side Madison apartment complex Wednesday afternoon, where Williams was found dead in his second floor apartment amid flames and heavy smoke.
It only took about 20 minutes to put out the fire, but units were called back a couple hours later after the flames rekindled.
Officials said the victim was carried into a hallway, but could not be resuscitated.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation. It destroyed Williams' apartment, and heavily damaged units next to it, and underneath it.
