Kelli Phillips of the Contra Costa Times reported today that the two-alarm house fire that killed former KPIX Channel 5 anchor Doug Murphy (pictured) has been ruled an accident, but tests showed his blood alcohol content was 0.31, nearly four times the legal limit. Murphy, a smoker, had asthma, emphysema and hypertension, the CCTimes story said. He had recently been hospitalized and had been using a wheelchair before his death in December.
