Ossineke — Authorities say a 60-year-old man has died following a house fire in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The Alpena News reports firefighters responded Tuesday in the Alpena County community of Ossineke after a neighbor saw fire coming from the single-story home and called 911.

Firefighters pulled the man from the home, but he was unresponsive when he was found. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Sanborn Township Fire Department Chief Dale Hart says a Michigan State Police fire marshal will investigate the fire’s cause.
