Crews were called out to a house fire early Tuesday morning and found a body at the scene. 

Firefighters were called to the 1200 block of E. Belvedere just before just before 1:30 a.m. While crews were investigating the fire, a body of an adult male was found in the back of the supposedly vacant apartment building. 

The fire was extinguished just before 2:00 in the morning and there were no other injuries reported. A neighbor told ABC 2 News that the building has been empty for a while. 

The cause of death of the man and the cause of the fire is still being investigated at this time.
