A Lower Frankford Township man is dead after a house fire Friday evening.

Cumberland County Coroner Charley Hall Tuesday identified the man as Marcus P. Snyder, 46.

Hall said Snyder was found in the basement of his home in the 200 block of Pinedale Road, and the house was destroyed.

Hall said Snyder died of smoke inhalation and thermal burns.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the State Police fire marshal.

The Cumberland County Department of Public Safety reported that more than 10 fire crews from Cumberland and Perry counties responded to the fire at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Police said no foul play is suspected, though the investigation continues.

It took more than six hours for crews to clear the scene, according to county records.
