A 90-year-old man was found dead in a fire Monday afternoon in the Sauganash neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

He was identified as Edwin Glab by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy released Tuesday determined Glad died of carbon monoxide intoxication and thermal injures. His death was ruled an accident.

Firefighters were called about 2 p.m. to a ranch home in the 5600 block of North Kerbs Avenue, according to the Chicago Fire Department.

A “relatively small” fire was extinguished right away, and crews found the man dead inside the house, department spokesman Larry Langford said.

Someone who called in the fire said someone was trapped in the home, he said.

An elderly female escaped the home unharmed, Langford said.
