KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --    Fire investigators in Kalamazoo are looking for the cause of a house fire in the 4000-block of Madison that killed its occupant early Saturday morning.  It’s believed the fire had been burning for a while before anyone reported it.

The first Public Safety Officers to arrive found flames shooting from the windows and the roof and the house totally engulfed in flames, about 1:30 Saturday morning.   It took several hours to put out the fire.  The body of the 64-year-old occupant was found in the basement. They will need to compare dental records to verify his identity.   The home is a total loss.

  The fire is not considered suspicious at this point.
