A 55-year-old man died early yesterday morning when a fire trapped him in the bedroom of his trailer home, state police said.

Thomas R. Krejci called 911 at 1:59 a.m. to report a fire in his trailer home at 30 Echo Road. The Bloomingburg Fire Department put out the blaze and found Krejci dead on the floor of his bedroom, police said. Smoke and fire had trapped him at one end of the trailer.

An autopsy performed at Catskill Regional Medical Center showed Krejci had died of smoke inhalation, police said. A neighbor told police that Krejci lived alone.

The cause of the fire is unknown. Fire investigators from Sullivan County are still gathering information from the scene, but foul play is not suspected.
