A Williston man has died after a fire occurred at his home Thursday morning.


The body of Dean Scarbeary was found in his bedroom upstairs in the two-story structure by firefighters working to put out the blaze, according to Barnwell County Coroner Lloyd Ward.


Williston Fire Chief Milton Widener said they received the call at about 7:11 a.m. The case is still under investigation, but Widener said it’s not suspected to be a suspicious fire, and they believe it started in the kitchen around the stove.


Elko and Long Branch Fire Departments also responded to the scene.
