 POLK CITY -- Authorities have released the name of a man whose body was found by firefighters in the basement of a Polk City home.
   He was identified as 46-year-old Mike Nelson.
   Authorities say Nelson was alone in the house when the fire started Tuesday night. A family member arriving home around 8:55 p.m. called 911 to report to the blaze.
   The fire cause is still being investigated, but investigators say it appears so far that vapors from spilled containers were ignited by an electrical source in the basement.
