DETROIT (WWJ) – Authorities are trying to figure out what caused a house fire on Detroit’s east side that killed one person and left another four hospitalized.

Fire officials say a total of five people were injured in the fire, two of whom were pulled out of the burning home and one of whom died. All were transported to local hospitals for treatment; their conditions are unknown.
