While the cause of a two-alarm fire that killed a 78-year-old man early Wednesday in San Francisco’s Cole Valley remains under investigation, the blaze is not considered suspicious, fire officials said.
The fire was first reported around 5:50 a.m. at a three-story home at the corner of Grattan and Shader streets.
The fire burned much of the home’s third floor.
The city’s Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the man who died in the blaze as Anthony Bowles, a San Francisco resident.
No other injuries were reported, fire officials said.
