Posted: March 7, 2012 - 8:40am  |  Updated: March 7, 2012 - 11:04am

An 84-year-old man was killed Tuesday night in a house fire on King Salmon Avenue in the Funny River area, Central Emergency Services reported.

At about 8:45 p.m., CES firefighters responded to a report of a residential fire at 35490 King Salmon Ave. and were advised while enroute that a person was likely still inside the house.

Crews arrived on scene and saw the about 1,500 square foot home involved in flames. At the time, the majority of the roof had collapsed and the residential section of the home was fully involved in flame.

Firefighters were not able to make entry due to the unsafe conditions and the fire was extinguished about three hours later.

After entering the structure, firefighters discovered the body of the man whose name is being held pending notification of kin. The residence was estimated at $125,000 and is a total loss, firefighters reported. The owner of the property confirmed the man inside was renting the home.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
