SIOUX CITY (AP) - Authorities say a discarded cigar is to blame for a deadly fire in Sioux City. Investigators say 71-year-old Delbert Rowse died at a hospital after he was pulled from the basement of the burning home early Saturday.
Officials say Rowse was asleep when the sofa he was on was ignited by an improperly discarded cigar. It is Sioux City's second fatal fire this year.
