NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - One man is dead following a house fire in western Pennsylvania.

Authorities in North Beaver Township, Lawrence County, say the man was found dead after crews were called about 10:45 p.m. Thursday. It’s believed a neighbor spotted the flames and dialed 911.

The name of the man hasn’t been released.

The fire appears to have started on the home’s first floor, but officials weren’t immediately sure what caused it.

The township is near New Castle, about 45 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
