DULUTH, Minn. (AP)  A man is dead after a house fire in a residential area of
Duluth.

Firefighters were called about a person possibly inside a house engulfed in
flames in Duluth's Lakeside neighborhood early Tuesday.

Assistant Duluth Fire Chief Chris Martinson says firefighters immediately began
to battle the blaze and search for anyone inside. A thermal imaging camera
revealed an unconscious man in the home.

Martinson says firefighters tried to revive the man, but he died. No one else was hurt.

It took firefighters about four hours to bring the fire under control. The
house is a total loss, with damage estimated at $150,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
