Posted: Sunday, November 16, 2008

ANCHORAGE - The state Fire Marshal's Office identified a man killed in a Nov. 9 apartment fire as 62-year-old Leroy "Lee" Levshakoff.

The Peters Creek fire displaced almost a dozen others after breaking out in the Songbird Drive apartment building.

The building was considered a total loss after firefighters fought the blaze for more than an hour before getting control of it.

Assistant State Fire Marshal Kelly Nicolello confirms the fire started in Levshakoff's apartment.

Nicolello said investigators are looking at two or three possible causes, none of them suspicious.
