An El Sobrante man who died in a one-alarm house fire early Sunday has been identified by the Contra Costa Coroner’s Office as 58-year-old Daniel Coleman.
Flames had already consumed the one-story home at Heath Drive and Greenbrae Court by the time crews arrived about 3:45 a.m., Contra Costa County Fire Protection District officials said.
The blaze likely originated in the home’s attic, according to fire officials. The house was otherwise unoccupied and Coleman was the only victim. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
