    NECN

    Maine State Police say a second man has died as the result of an apartment fire in Biddeford last month.

    21-year-old James Ford passed away at a hospice facility in Scarborough Tuesday night.

    Ford and his roommate were rescued by firefighters on Sept. 18 from their home.

    23-year-old James Moore died a couple of days after the blaze from smoke inhalation.

    Investigators say the fire was arson, and they continue to look into both deaths as "suspicious."

    An autopsy will be conducted on Ford.
