DENVER (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a man whose body was found by firefighters battling a blaze at a Denver building.

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/SwI0Xo ) 29-year-old Shane Richardson’s body was found in an apartment closet on the second floor of the building that houses Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen. Investigators have not said how he died.

Firefighters were called to the building early Monday morning, and investigators believe the fire started on the second floor. Rosenberg’s operates out of the building’s first floor below the apartment.

Denver Fire spokeswoman Melissa Taylor has said it’s unclear if Richardson died in the fire or before it began.

About 40 firefighters responded to the blaze, which caused extensive damage throughout the building.
