When firefighters arrived on the scene of the burning home Monday morning, they were met by a 76 year old woman who told them her husband was still inside the smoke filled structure.
Sac City Fire Fighters entered the South 13th Street residence and located the body of 84 year old Dale Cook.
His wife, Barbra Cook was taken to Loring Hospital in Sac City with non-life threatening injuries.
