An Indiana County man died from inhaling smoke during a fire Sunday that destroyed his White Township trailer, according to the county coroner.

Steven Brewer, 36, died from carbon monoxide poisioning after the fire swept through his home in the Chevy Chase section of the community, Coroner Michael Baker said.

Emergency responders found Brewer's body in the kitchen shortly after the fire was reported at 10:07 p.m. His dog also perished.

An autopsy was done Monday, and toxicology results should be available in two to three weeks, Baker said.

Brewer's 16-year-old son was not home when the fire broke out and was later found safe with friends, Baker said.

Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
