TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Authorities were on the scene of a fatal fire in Toledo early Friday morning.

Crews were called out to the house fire in the 5900 block of Adelaide just after 5 a.m. According to Toledo Fire & Rescue Pvt. Sterling Rahe, the fire was too intense for police who approached the house, so they had to back out before fire crews arrived.

Officials with TFRD confirmed firefighters found the body of a 69-year-old man in an upstairs bedroom during a search of the home after the fire was extinguished. The identity of the victim has not been released yet, and the exact cause of death has not been determined.
