An 85-year-old Sumter County man has died after he was unable to escape flames in his mobile home.

The Item of Sumter reported James Johnson Sr. died in the fire about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. His wife, Ruth Bradley, made it out of the home without injury.

Coroner Harvin Bullock says it appears Johnson died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

It took fire fighters about 20 minutes to control the fire. Johnson's body was found in a back bathroom.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
