BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been found dead in a third-floor apartment after a morning fire.

Brockton fire officials received a 911 call shortly before noon on Sunday for a fire at a multi-unit apartment complex. Officials said no flames could be seen at 55 City Hall Plaza when they arrived, but they were met with heavy smoke upon entering a third-floor apartment.

Officials found 68-year-old Robert Samuels in a bedroom. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Plymouth County District Attorney said the fire is not suspicious. No foul play is expected.

The fire remains under investigation.
