Body found inside vacant Detroit home after catching fire

Fire crews outside burned-out vacant home in Detroit

The Detroit Fire Department said the body of a deceased man was found inside a vacant home that had caught fire early Wednesday morning.

A single-alarm fire prompted firefighters to respond to a home on Mansfield on the city's west side near Tireman Avenue.

The fire was put out quickly after crews arrived.

However, authorities investigating the scene later discovered a male between the ages of 50 and 60 years old inside. 

The man hasn't been identified.
