TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Firefighters in the Tucson area say a man died in a house fire Saturday night.

The Northwest Fire Department says it got several calls about a fire at a home and found it was heavily involved in fire when firefighters arrived.

A woman who was able to escape was checked for smoke inhalation, but firefighters facing high heat, zero visibility and extensive fire conditions couldn’t find a missing man on time.

They later found him in a hallway and declared him dead on scene.

The fire department didn’t identify the man who was killed, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
