A BRITISH man has been killed in a cave house fire in Baza.
Father-of-two James Timothy Okeefe, known as Tim, 56, was found dead in the cave where he lived in the El Perchel neighbourhood.
According to officials the part-time artist and handyman died from carbon monoxide inhalation after a couch caught fire, filling the cave with smoke.
His body was found two days later when his long-term partner Janet returned home and found the interior of the cave burnt.
“Tim was a very jolly chap,” said Su Hore, who owns a holiday cave next door.
“Trips to Baza will not be the same for my family without him.”
