BEEKMAN, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say one person is dead after an early morning fire at a home in the Hudson Valley.

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office tells the Poughkeepsie Journal (https://pojonews.co/1mqjJWp ) that the fire was reported around 12:15 a.m. Monday at a home in the town of Beekman, near the Putnam County line 65 miles north of New York City.

Deputies say a male resident was killed in the blaze.

Officials haven’t released the victim’s name or the exact location of the fire because the next of kin haven’t been notified.

Fire investigators remain at the scene of the blaze looking for a cause.
