NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) - The body of a man was found Friday morning inside a burning home in the northeastern Nebraska city of Norfolk.

The fire broke out Friday morning and was reported just before 10 a.m. by a postal worker who called 911, the Norfolk Daily News reported. Firefighters who arrived on the scene found flames and heavy smoke coming from the home and had to cut through the home’s roof and an exterior wall to extinguish the fire.

Norfolk police said they didn’t yet know the cause of the man’s death, but believe the cause of the fire was accidental.

The man’s name had not been released by Friday afternoon.
