Update: Man Who Died In Springfield House Fire Was Local Artist

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Apr 7, 2013

Details are emerging about the man who died in a house fire in Springfield this morning.

Family members at the scene near Fremont and Bennett tell KTTS News Paul Dorrough was a local artist who graduated from Parkview.

Natalie McIntosh says you may not have known her dad, but you've likely seen his work all over Springfield.

"...Great Southern on Battlefield, Mexican Villa, I mean just everywhere. He graduated SMSU with a Master's and also went to the Chicago Art Institute - very talented man," says McIntosh.

The fire was confined to one room of the home, and Dorrough was the only one there. The Fire Marshal says the home did not have working smoke alarms. Investigators are not yet sure how the fire started.
