FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The State Fire Marshal is narrowing in on what caused a Fort Myers condo to go up in flames Thursday, killing the homeowner inside.

The fire happened at a home on South Brandywine Circle. The fire marshal says the victim was inside the garage when they believe a car parked inside burst into flames, causing about $75,000 in damage.  But investigators are still working to confirm that the car is to blame.

The fire is not considered suspicious.

No other condo units were damaged.

Meanwhile, the Lee County Sheriff's Office is waiting on the medical examiner to complete an autopsy before releasing the victim's name.
