DETROIT (WWJ) – Police say the bodies of a 50-year-old man and his dog were found following a house fire on the city’s west side.
Investigators made the discovery Wednesday morning following an overnight fire at a home on Auburn Street, near Warren and Evergreen.
Officials believe it was an accidental electrical fire. Investigators say early signs indicate the fire started in a speaker in the living room, creating smoke that likely killed the man and his pet as they slept.
The man’s identity was not immediately released.
An investigation is ongoing.
