SALEM, Mass. (AP) — Salem fire officials have released the name of a man who died in a two-alarm fire at a city home over the weekend.

Capt. Alan Dionne says 53-year-old Michael Lyness owned the three-story Beacon Street home and lived in the second floor unit.

Lyness died at the scene of the fire reported at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Dionne tells The Salem News (http://bit.ly/10ge2jh ) that crews were immediately notified that a man was still in the building and entered the second floor under heavy smoke and fire to conduct a search. Lyness was found dead in the room where the fire is believed to have started.

There were no working fire alarms on the second floor of the home.

A tenant on the first floor escaped.
