Warren County officials have identified the man who died in an early morning fire in Pittsfield as 61 year-old Darwin Durlin, from Warren.
Reports indicate that Durlin successfully managed to help his wife escape the blaze on Barton Run Road shortly after 1:00 AM on Monday. He apparently re-entered the home and tried to extinguish the fire, but died at the scene.
Durlin’s wife was transported to Warren General Hospital, was treated for minor injuries, and was released. A third party had escaped the fire without injuries.
The blaze eventually spread to the entire residence. No cause of the fire was available on Monday.
