OAKLAND, Md. - The Maryland State Fire Marshall's Office says a fire that killed an Oakland man began when a kerosene heater ignited some nearby materials.

The agency reported Monday on the cause of the trailer fire that killed 37-year- old Roger Reckart.

He was found dead in the burned remains of his 16-foot camper trailer Friday night.

Investigators say Reckart was the lone occupant of the trailer.
