KUSA - One person has died in a house fire on West 24th Avenue near Clay Street in West Denver.
Fire crews were called out to the home around 9 p.m. on Tuesday. They thought the house was abandoned, but they later found a body in the home.
Now, investigators are working to figure out how the fire started, and how the person ended up in the home.
"When firefighters arrived, they found this person inside the stairwell. There was heavy fire when they actually arrived on the scene," Mark Watson with Denver Fire said. "The house appears to be abandoned. Public services tell us there was no power going to the building."
Investigators are exploring the idea that maybe the person who died inside was just trying to keep warm during a very chilly night.
