MANCHESTER, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The State Fire Marshal's Office says a man has been found dead following an early morning fire in Manchester on Saturday.

NEWS CENTER has learned the name of the victim was Sam Spinicci. His 3 stepdaughters tell our Kait Walsh that was "a wonderful man". Spinicci also has one son and 2 daughters.

Around 6am Saturday morning, an employee of the Kennebec Taxi company, whose offices are located in a recreational vehicle outside the home, heard a crash come from the house.  When she got outside, she saw the air conditioner from a second story window had fallen out, and that the house was on fire.

When first responders arrived at 119 Granite Hill Road, the house was full engulfed in flames.

Investigators say the investigation is ongoing, but believe the cause of the fire was electrical in nature, and is not considered suspicious.

Four employees of the Kennebec Taxi company were working in the RV at the time.  No one was hurt.

The owner of home spent their money fueling their taxi company business, and as a result, had no home insurance.

The Fire Chief of the Manchester Fire Department says the house is likely a total loss.  The 2 floor sustained heavy fire damage, and the first floor has heavy water and smoke damage.

Spinicci's stepdaughters don't know why their stepfather never made it out of the home, but say he suffered from a "bad heart".

Spincci leaves behind 3 stepdaughters, one son, two daughters and his wife.
