WATERFORD, Wis. (AP) -- Racine County sheriff's officials have identified the victim of a fire that broke out in a House on a Fox River island in Waterford.

But investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire that killed 88-year-old Lawrence C. Gough.

Firefighters were dispatched to Gough's home on Fox Isle Park Drive about 6 a.m. Thursday. Lt. Dan Klatt says a frantic caller told a dispatcher that several people were unable to get out. Gough found on the second floor. He died at the scene.

Two other people in the home were taken to a Milwaukee hospital.
