RIVERVIEW, Fla. (AP) — Firefighters found a man dead inside a burning home near Tampa.

The man’s daughter, who lives nearby, called Hillsborough County Fire Rescue around 3 a.m. Friday after seeing flames coming from her father’s home in Riverview.

The house was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The man was found in a bedroom of the burning home.

It took about 25 minutes to put out the fire.

An investigation was under way early Friday.

The man’s name has not been released.
