A 74-year-old Quincy man, Eddie Gurley, died this morning from apparent smoke inhalation after his mobile home caught fire. The home is located just north of Quincy.
Around 10 a.m., Fire Chief Howard Smith said a phone call alerted firefighters that someone could possibly still be in the home.
"When we arrived the house was not fully involved so we were able to get in and check. When we found Mr. Gurley, he was already dead," Smith said.
