AVERY RIDGE – A man confined to a wheelchair since being injured in Vietnam died early Wednesday in a blaze that destroyed his Anderson Township home.
Perry County Coroner Charlie Baumeister said the body of Gary W. Miller, 59, of 2465 Avery Ridge Road, was found near the entrance to the home by a sheriff’s deputy. His wheelchair was found nearby. Baumeister speculated Miller succumbed to smoke while trying to escape the house.
