Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

At 7:38 a.m., on Tuesday, Lake County Sheriff deputies responded to a fire at a home in the 36900 block of North Corona Drive in unincorporated Lake Villa, and they found smoke coming from the northwest side of the home.

Lake Villa Fire Protection District firefighters found the homeowner, 56-year-old Curtis L. Alcorn, dead in a bedroom.

The fire appears to be accidental and is not thought to be suspicious. The State Fire Marshal’s office, fire protection district, and Lake County coroner’s office are investigating, along with the sheriff’s office.
