GREENFIELD — One person is dead after an apartment fire early Monday morning in Greenfield.

The Greenfield Fire Territory was called around midnight to the fire on the second floor of a building near West Main Street and South State Street.

Deputy Chief Jason Horning said a man, Keith Myran, 53, of Greenfield, had to be evacuated from the apartment.

The man was found unconscious and suffering from injuries related to heat and fire exposure, according to a press release from the police department. He died at the hospital.

Horning said the apartment was above a business and it doesn't appear the fire spread to the business.

The fire remains under investigation at this time by Fire Marshal Steve Kropacek with assistance from Greenfield police detectives. Nothing appears to be suspicious at this time, according to the release.

A battery in a smoke detector in the apartment appears to have been removed, according to the release. The fire territory is reminding people smoke detectors are available to anyone who needs them at no cost by contacting Kropacek at 317-325-1505.

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call Kropacek.
