Coolidge-  Flames ripped through a Coolidge home trapping and killing the home's owner.  Neighbors tried in vain to reach 74 year old Willie Glenn, but the smoke inside the home was too thick.  Firefighters found his body in a bedroom. 

Investigators believe the fire started at the rear of this Woodhaven Road home in the kitchen just before ten last night.  

"It appears that the fire started accidentally, there's no reason to believe other, but there is still an ongoing investigation," said Inv. Pascal Autrey, Thomas Co. Sheriff's Office. 

Glenn lived alone.  His body was sent to the crime lab in Moultrie for further evaluation.
