NINETY SIX, S.C. (AP) - Greenwood County authorities say a man has been found dead after a fire in his home in Ninety Six.

Investigators said the fire was reported around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and flames were billowing outside of the house when firefighters arrived.

The coroner’s office said the body of a man who appears to be in his 70s was found inside. His name has not been released.

Authorities say the cause of the fire does not appear to be suspicious, but the State Law Enforcement Division is investigating since it involved a death. An autopsy has also been ordered.
