SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — Firefighters say an elderly man lost his life as a fire raged in a Shreveport home.

The victim's name is being withheld while the Caddo Parish Coroner's Office works to make a positive identification.

Firefighters responded to house fire around 4 a.m. Monday and there were reports a man was trapped inside.

Fire department spokesman Fred Sanders said information about the man's location within the home was inaccurate and they were not able to find him as they fought the flames.

Sanders said the victim's body was found in the kitchen after the fire was brought under control.

The cause of this fire remains under investigation.
