VADNAIS HEIGHTS (AP) - Officials say one person has died in a house fire in the Twin Cities area.

Firefighters were called to a house in Vadnais Heights New Year's Day. It took about an hour to extinguish the flames.

Fire Chief Ed Leier says one person died in the fire. The victim has not been identified.

Neighbors say a man and woman moved into the one-story home a few years ago and had been renovating it. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
