TECUMSEH, Okla.—A man is found dead inside a home that burned Monday morning.

Tecumseh firefighters rushed to the scene of a house fire along Washington St. around 11 a.m.

When they arrived, a neighbor told crews there may be a person still inside the home.

After the fire was under control, firefighters were able to go inside and found the body of a white male.

Police say he was found in the middle of the house.

So far, the victim has not been identified.

Authorities say the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner will be responsible for identifying the man from records and find out how he died.

The state fire marshal has also been brought in to help determine a cause for the fire.

Asst. Chief J.R. Kidney, Tecumseh Police Department, said, “The house had several heaters in the home, just not sure at this time if it was started from the heater or some other source.”

The fire appeared to have started in the front area.
