SEATTLE (AP) - Officials say firefighters discovered a man’s body as they cleared out a Seattle apartment building that caught fire, leaving one person dead and another injured.

Fire officials don’t believe the man’s death is related to the Tuesday fire. Police say the man appears to have died of natural causes.

Firefighters had been called to the blaze that was in a second floor unit of the building around noon.
