Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger on Tuesday said the death of 30-year-old Vaughn Erwin Sr., of Dayton, has been ruled a homicide.

Firefighters found Erwin’s body after flames burned the garage in Dayton to the ground last week.

Dayton police are continuing their investigation of the blaze and Erwin’s death.
