Fire marshals are trying to determine caused a one-alarm fire in Glen Oaks on Friday that claimed a man’s life.

Police said the flames ignited at 7:36 p.m. on Feb. 9 on the second floor of a home on 262nd Street between 82nd and 83rd avenues.

More than 60 firefighters and the 105th Precinct rushed to the home after receiving a 911 call; they worked quickly to bring it under control at about 8:13 p.m.
