The cause of a house fire that killed a retired Grand Forks attorney is being investigated.

Neighbors say 86-year-old Fred Arnason lived alone in the home and relied on an oxygen tank to help him breathe. Authorities say the fire started Tuesday night in Arnason's kitchen.

Arnason was an assistant Grand Forks county prosecutor in Grand Forks before he started a private law practice. The North Dakota state Bar Association recognized Arnason this year as a 60-year member of the lawyers' group.
