GATESVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

The Coryell Sheriff's Department said they have identified the man who died after a fire engulfed a home in Gatesville on Friday morning. 

The Coryell Sheriff's Department identified the man as 36-year-old Lucas Hollenbeck. 

The Coryell Sheriff's Office received the reports of the structure fire around 8:43 a.m. on the 300 block of River Rd.
