Update: Coroner releases name of fire victim

Macon-Bibb County firefighters discovered the body of a man sitting on a couch in a west Macon apartment fire early Monday.

The 56-year-old, Ronald Kennedy, suffered from polio, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

"He did have some medical issues," Jones said. Authorities found oxygen tanks inside the apartment.

An autopsy could be performed Monday to determine whether anything other than the fire caused the man’s death.
