Kelvin Clements, 67, was identified by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office Friday afternoon.

As News Center 7 previously reported, Harrison Township firefighters and Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 7:08 p.m. to the 2700 block of Rugby Road on initial reports of a structure fire.

When firefighters arrived, they discovered heavy fire showing from the back of the house, Battalion Chief Seth Dodds told News Center 7 at the scene.

“Due to the structural sound of the residence, we were able to gain access to some of the areas,” said Dodds.
