GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A man has been found dead in his burning home in central North Carolina.

Greensboro Assistant Fire Chief Dwayne Church said in a news release that firefighters were called to a home around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Church says it took about two dozen firefighters about half an hour to control the fire.

Church said Friday the victim was 71-year-old Robert Graves Jr. of Greensboro.

Church said the cause of the fire is still under investigation. But he says it does not appear to be suspicious.
