    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A 21-year-old man set a fire inside the
    house he shared with his mother after a fight with her, then died
    after he was trapped inside, police said.
    Jacob S. Bell died early Monday trying to escape through an
    attached garage after he used gasoline and kerosene to start the
    fire in the one-story house, police said.
    Firefighters found Bell lying inside the garage near a
    walkthrough door after getting the blaze under control, said Ed
    Lytal, spokesman for the New Haven/Adams Township Fire Department
    spokesman. The fire gutted the house and damaged the house next
    door.
    An autopsy revealed Bell died of smoke inhalation, Allen County
    Coroner E. Jon Brandenberger said.
    A ruling on whether Bell's death was accidental, intentional or
    natural will not be made further investigation can be completed, he
    said.
    Bell had threatened his mother late Sunday, which prompted her
    to leave the home with her two dogs, police said.
    Investigators found points of origin for the fire at opposite
    ends of the house and at least two fuel cans inside after the fire
    that was reported about 1 a.m., police said.

    Seems he was overcome by his own actions.
