A man who was found dead in a burning house last week in North Point has been identified by Baltimore County police as Carl Robert Groth, 60.

Firefighters found Groth dead in the living room of his home on the 7400 block of Old Battle Grove Road at about 2:30 p.m. Friday. A fire spokesperson said Monday that smoking was the cause of the blaze, which was deemed accidental.

The fire was confined to the living room, and officials estimated it caused about $15,000 in damage.
