The death of a man whose body was found inside his burning Pleasant Hills apartment has been ruled an accident, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said on Thursday.

William Ingold, 56, died of thermal injuries and smoke inhalation in the fire that erupted shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Neopolitan Suites on Curry Hollow Road, the spokesman said.

Alvin Henderson, chief of Allegheny County's Department of Emergency Services, said the fire was in the rear bedroom area of the third-floor apartment. Police and neighbors made their way into the apartment to attempt to rescue Ingold but were driven back by the heat and heavy smoke, Henderson said. The county fire marshal is trying to determine what started the fire.
