Police have released the identity of an elderly Gorham man who died in a house fire last night.

Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the victim has been identified as Gary D. Marshall. Investigators say it appears that the 82-year-old was cooking something on the stove when it caught fire and spread. His body was found in the bathroom where Gorham firefighters tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

The mobile home was located on Patio Park Lane in Gorham.
