Man found dead in Bellevue home scorched by fire
BELLEVUE, Wash. -- A man was found dead after a fire broke out inside his Bellevue home Sunday evening.
Firefighters were called to the home just before 9:30 p.m., and arrived to find a fire on the back side of the home, according to Lt. Camari Olson with Bellevue Fire.
They had difficulty getting into the home due to a large number of items inside, and had to cut down a window to gain access. Once they got in, they found a man dead inside.
It's unclear if the man died from the fire or something else; the King County Medical Examiner will make the final determination, Olson said.
There is no word yet what started the fire.
