An 89-year-old Harlan, Iowa man died in a fire Saturday afternoon.

Harlan Fire Chief Roger Bissen said Bernard Wolfe was trapped in his basement by the blaze, which apparently started when a torch Wolfe was using malfunctioned and caught items on fire. Bissen didn't know the official cause of Wolfe's death. The fire was contained to the basement.

Harlan is 25 miles northeast of Council Bluffs.
