Deteriorating building conditions made it difficult for firefighters to mount an offensive attack on the fire, but they were eventually able to get inside and had the fire under control by 1:14 Friday morning.

One person was found inside and declared dead at the scene. A dog was also found dead in the house.

The investigation continues to find the cause of the fire.
