DETROIT (AP) - Authorities say a man has died in a house fire on Detroit’s east side.

Fire Chief Dale Bradley tells the Detroit Free Press that crews responded early Wednesday to the single-family home.

Arson investigators were called to the scene. Bradley says the circumstances and cause of the fire are under investigation.

WDIV-TV reports investigators found a tangle of wires and extension cords in the house, suggesting an illegal electrical hookup had been used.
