    Fire Sweeps Through Maine Home, Leaving 1 Man Dead

    A fire has swept through a home in Maine, leaving one man dead.

    The state fire marshal's office says firefighters found 68-year-old Stephen McAllister Sunday morning in the living room of his one-story home in the town of Norway.

    Authorities say the fire was reported by a neighbor who had spotted smoke coming from McAllister's house.

    An autopsy will be conducted.

"I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
