TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man died following a Tampa Bay area house fire.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue reports that firefighters responded to a Riverview home Friday afternoon and found smoke and flames coming from the front. Crews extinguished the fire.

Officials say a neighbor helped 84-year-old Joseph Saunders get out of the house before rescue crews arrived, but Saunders was declared dead at a nearby hospital.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
