Investigators say the tenant who died in this fire was using a grill in his apartment for heat.
They say nearby combustibles ignited, and fire erupted.
The body of that tenant was discovered in the rubble after firefighters got the flames under control.
Meantime, one man who fled the building unharmed says he's lucky to be alive.

Cox Cable has announced a one-dollar-76-cent increase in its most popular basic cable package.
