    A 59-year-old man was killed in a house fire on Thursday night in New Hampshire, according to the state fire marshal.

    Anthony Disciscio of Milton was found dead on the kitchen floor of his home by firefighters. The cause and manner of his death is pending the results of laboratory tests being conducted by the state medical examiner's office.

    Firefighters responded to 23 Depot Road in Milton around 9 p.m. Thursday for a report of a structure fire with an occupant in the residence. The fire was reported by a neighbor who heard the smoke alarm.

    Upon arrival, firefighters observed a smoke condition and found a fire in the kitchen. The fire was quickly extinguished, and Disciscio was found on the kitchen floor.

    The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the state fire marshal said preliminary indications are that the fire was accidental and occurred as a result of smoking materials in close proximity to medical oxygen.
