GARY, Ind. (AP) - Police say the death of a man found inside a burning Gary home has been ruled a homicide.

Sgt. Thomas Decanter tells The (Munster) Times (http://bit.ly/1HUgPPQ ) that firefighters battling a house fire just before 4 a.m. Saturday discovered the body of a man inside and contacted police.

Decanter says the fire has been deemed an arson and the death ruled a homicide.

Lake County Coroner’s office investigators say they’re trying to locate next of kin for the man, whose name hasn’t been released.

Decanter says the new Lake County Metropolitan Homicide Unit is leading the investigation.
