Firefighters say the man lived in the shed.

She says some neighbors even tried to help.

“I saw them come out with a hose, trying to water it down,” Ramirez said. 

The RV next to the shed also has a lot of damage.

Besides the victim, the Oklahoma City Fire Department says they did not find anyone else in the area at the time of the fire.

Ramirez says the whole scene was difficult to see.

“It was pretty hard to look at. It was just, I couldn’t look that much so I had to go back inside,” she said. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
