Gary Lemoine, 65, of Muskogee was killed last last night or early this morning when a house he was in was consumed by a fire, according to a Muskogee police report.
The house, at 1158 Maple Street, was burned in what police are saying might be arson.
A neighbor is reported to have helped other victims out of the house through a window, but police found Lemoine’s remains burned inside the house.
More information as it becomes available.
Lemoine was formerly a gym teacher at Tony Goetz Elementary School, according to neighbors.
