TLS was just on scene of a deadly fire at Tent City in Lakewood. The fire occurred at about 6:45 p.m this evening. LFD and LPD responded and requested many backup units due the lack of lighting in the homeless shelter tent area. At approximately 7:10 p.m they discovered one DOA (Dead On Arrival). The CIU and medical examiners office arrived and closed off the entire perimeter, which started at the Minyan Shelanu area and stretched deep into the woods. TLS spoke to the officials on scene and being that it is an ongoing crime scene investigation, no other information is available at this time.
U/D As per the LPD, the man who died in the fire was Rev. James Wilcox.
