The Jefferson County Coroner's office has released the identity of the person killed in a house fire in Mountain Brook earlier this week.
The victim has been identified as Lee S. Stuart, a 62-year-old man from Mountain Brook.
A fire broke out Monday morning around 3:15 a.m. at a home in the 3700 block of South Brookwood Road. Mountain Brook fire chief Robert Ezekiel said he believed the person who died in the fire was a male, but they were waiting on dental records for a positive identity.
The coroner released Stuart's identity on Thursday afternoon.
The state fire marshal's office is assisting with the investigation. Authorities have not yet released a cause of the fire.
