The man was found unresponsive in his home wearing his oxygen supply equipment, the El Dorado County Fire Protection District said. The district provides fire protection to most of the county, which is directly east of Sacramento County.

The man was identified by Fox40 as Robert Mardis Sr., 67, and reported that family members said he was suffering from COPD and congestive heart failure. The Placerville Mountain Democrat was the first to report his death Thursday morning.
