OGDEN — A man was found dead at the scene of a house fire in Ogden Monday morning, officials said.

Crews responded to a two-story home near 600 North and Van Buren Avenue around 3:45 a.m. and found it fully engulfed in flames, according to the Ogden Fire Department.

Firefighters began fighting the fire and a short time later found the deceased man on the second floor of the home, KSL's Felicia Martinez reported. They were not sure if the man died from the fire or another cause.
