PERRY HALL -- A 79-year-old man died in a fire yesterday in his home in the 4100 block of Kahlston Road, despite Baltimore County firefighters' efforts to revive him.

The victim, Roy Shifflett, was found in his bathroom, which was filled with smoke from a fire that started in his basement, said Lt. Vernon S. Adamson.

Shifflett, who neighbors said was a retired Bethlehem Steel employee, was home alone when the fire started about 8 a.m. The cause of the fire was under investigation late yesterday.
