The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office reports a 49-year-old Oakdale man died in a garage fire Monday.
Emergency responders were called to the location shortly before noon by a woman who told the dispatcher her husband might have been in the garage when the fire broke out. The shed was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. They found Richard Siess dead inside the structure. Investigators have determined the cause of the fire but they say there’s nothing to indicate foul play.
