Joseph A. Lasko, 70, died from injuries sustained in the blaze which started around 4 a.m. Saturday morning at the senior development center on Biabou Drive.

The cause of the fire has been ruled accidental but an investigation continues.

Lasko was the only resident of the home.

One firefighter was taken to Community Medical Center for treatment of undisclosed minor injuries from fighting the fast moving fire and was released later Saturday morning.

No other community residents were injured in the fire, though a eighboring home sustained minor fire-related damage.
