Chicago fire officials say a 92-year-old man died after a fire in the city's West Town neighborhood that displaced more than a dozen people.

Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford tells the Chicago Sun-Times the man was found Sunday night in front room of a second-story home.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office identified the man as Frank Cecola. An autopsy is expected Monday.

Langford says Cecola was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital around 11:40 p.m.

A second person was also hospitalized with minor injuries.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
