Traverse City — Authorities say a 56-year-old man has been found dead following a residential fire in Traverse City.

The fire department says neighbors who lived in other parts of the home that was broken up into apartments tried unsuccessfully to rescue David Templeton early Monday.

The fire appears to be accidental and was contained to the apartment where he was found. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
