Authorities have identified the person killed in a house fire in East Hanover last week as a 43-year-old man.

Glen Poppendicek died in the fire, which broke out in a bedroom of a home on Ward Place shortly after midnight Thursday, according to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.

Two other people in the home were rescued. The fire in the single-family home is not considered suspicious.

The prosecutor’s office said Monday the investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
