      LeRoy man killed in fast-moving house fire

      A 73-year-old man is dead following a fire described by officials as fast-moving due to windy conditions.

      Eugene Donovan, 73, is dead following a fire described by officials as fast-moving due to windy conditions.

      Crews were called to the home at 19627 LeRoy Road around 4:30 p.m Tuesday.

      The two-story home was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.

      Beverly Donovan, 72, was also inside the home but able to escape. Fire officials said Eugene, who used a walker to get around, was most likely overcome by heavy smoke and became trapped by the flames.
