The body was removed from the home by the Steuben County Coroner's Office, Davies said. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Davies said the fire was very difficult to extinguish due in part to the clutter around the home. The Corning Fire Department will release the name of the victim and the cause of the fire when the autopsy and the investigation into the fire are completed.
