Authorities release names of Des Moines fire victims

DES MOINES — Authorities have released the name of a man who died after a fire at a Des Moines apartment.

The Des Moines Fire Department identified the man Wednesday as 68-year-old Osman Suljic, who was found Tuesday in his third-floor apartment where the blaze is believed to have started. The department says he was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Department spokesman Brian O’Keefe said another person at the scene was treated for a pre-existing medical condition, but he said he couldn’t confirm whether the woman was Suljic’s wife.

The department says the fire cause is being investigated.
