The man killed in a fire in an apartment early this morning has been identified as Gordon Spiteri, a new resident of Marsascala.

New reports have said the man died from complications due to smoke inhalation after rushing in to save the other people trapped in his apartment block. Sources have also said today was Spiteri's birthday.

According to a report on ONE News the fire was caused by a heater in the bedroom of one of the block's apartments.

Spiteri was found on the ground in the common area of the apartment block and was certified dead in hospital a short while later.

An investigation is currently underway.
