ST. CLOUD - A man found dead after a St. Cloud house fire has been identified as 23-year-old Kyle Kopischke.

According to St. Cloud police, Kyle Kopischke was found dead in a St. Cloud house at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday. He was a renter along with a 22-year-old who was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office plan to do an autopsy to determine the exact cause of Kopischke’s death. Police say Kopischke is originally from the town of Comfrey.

The St. Cloud Fire Department says the fire started in the kitchen of the residence and is believed to have been accidental.

Two other men lived at the rental home, but were not there at the time.

Rhonda Lyon’s son Jordan is one of the two men who were not there.  She says it’s been a shocking blow for them.
