Man killed in Fair Oaks house fire identified by coroner

The Sacramento County Coroner's office has released the name of the man who died along with four dogs in a house fire on Monday in Fair Oaks.

He was identified as 64-year-old Ronald Burns.

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District crews responded to the fire on the 4000 block of Main Street around 3:15 p.m. First-arriving firefighters reported heavy smoke and flames at the rear of the home.

Firefighters quickly found Burns inside the home while other crews worked to put the fire out, according to a Sac Metro press release.

Two Metro Fire firefighters received minor injuries while fighting the blaze, Fong said. One was treated at the scene and released; the other was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
