Man killed in South Bend house fire

Posted:

A son is grieving after his father died in a house fire in South Bend.

The Fire Department says Garfield Bryant passed away at Memorial Hospital after being pulled from a fire at his home.

It happened in the 700 block of west Wayne Street Friday night.

Bryant's son Stanley was at the home Saturday morning and told us his dad will be missed by the entire neighborhood.

"He had a kind heart, he did a lot for a lot of people, a lot of positive things.  If you wanted a grill built back in the day when they had brick grills he went around doing that for people.  Anything he could do to help a friend that's what he'd do," says Stanley Bryant.

The Fire department says the fire started in the dining room of the house but the cause is still under investigation.
