DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Coroner’s Office released the identity of the Summerville man who died Sunday in a house fire.

Michael Steven Davis, 56, died in a house fire in the 9000 block of Seminole Drive, Coroner Paul Brouthers said.

North Charleston Firefighters responded at approximately 7:09 p.m. Sunday to a two-story home and saw heavy fire coming from the roof, North Charleston Deputy Fire Chief Stephanie Julazadeh said.

Firefighters were not initially able to get inside the home because of the fire, but Julazadeh said they were able to get into the home through windows to search for possible victims and said they found Davis dead inside the home during that search.

Davis will undergo an autopsy at MUSC on Saturday.

Investigators were still working to determine the cause of the fire.
