EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - A 66-year-old Emporia man is dead after firefighters found his body inside his smoke-filled home.

The Emporia Gazette (https://bit.ly/1HVkUFM ) reports firefighters were called to the Emporia home just before 4:30 a.m. Thursday on a report of smoke coming from the building’s attick.

A neighbor told emergency responders he thought the man was still inside the home but would not come out.

The victim is identified as Roger Fowler. An Emporia Fire Department spokesman says foul play was not suspected.
