TUCSON, Ariz. — A man was found dead in a Tucson apartment after a fire there Thursday afternoon.

According to the Tucson Fire Department, it happened on the 100 block of Valencia Road, near 6th Avenue. TFD says first responding crews saw smoke and flames shooting out of a second-story window at the apartment complex.

Crews quickly got the fire under control, but later found a man dead inside the apartment.

Several other units were damanged in the fire, and the American Red Cross is assisting the families who live there.

TFD says it's the fourth fire fatality in Tucson this year.
