ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Firefighters responding to an apartment blaze in Allentown have discovered a man’s body in a top-floor unit.
Investigators say the blaze was reported at the three-story building around 3:30 a.m. Thursday. They say it’s not immediately clear what caused the man’s death, but that it doesn’t appear to be related to the fire.
Officials say there wasn’t much of a fire until they reached the top floor of the building, where they found the body. A preliminary investigation found the fire may have started in a ceiling fan and spread to the roof, which appeared to be severely damaged.
The name of the victim wasn’t immediately released.
