CHRIS HOFFMAN: Hey, everyone. Chris Hoffman, KDKA, here out in Big Beaver Borough, where there was a fire at that home around 6:00 this morning, according to the Big Beaver fire chief. He says it was primarily in the back of the home. He says when they got here, there was one person inside. That person is now dead, according to the fire chief. We know the coroner was on the scene. They haven't released the cause of death yet. They would also not tell us if that was a man or a woman inside. And that was the only person inside when fire crews arrived.

Since then, since they left, it's primarily been state police, that's their van with the flashing lights right there, and Beaver Falls police that have been here. We do know the state police fire marshal's investigating. Beaver Falls police have been here investigating as well. We've seen them taking photos and more inside. We don't know if this is suspicious. We don't know if there's anything else they're looking into at this point. We have been working to get information. We'll continue to follow this and bring you the latest both on air and online.
