Long Lake man killed in a house fire Thursday morning

LONG LAKE, SD A house fire claimed the life of a man near the northern edge of South Dakota.
64-year-old Jimmy Kolb was killed during a fire at his home in Long Lake early Thursday morning.
McPherson County Sheriff Dave Ackerman says a passerby saw smoke and flames and called for help.
Since Long Lake doesn't have its own water supply, he says it took a while to get the fire under control.
No one else was inside the home when the fire started, but a pet cat is still unaccounted for.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the South Dakota Fire Marshall, the Department of Criminal investigation and the McPherson County Sheriff’s Office.
