Last night the Amarillo Fire Department responded to a fire just before midnight.

Crews arrived in the 2100 block of South Arthur to find an efficiency apartment fully involved with fire.  While extinguishing the blaze rescuers found an elderly man deceased in the kitchen area.  The fire was put out by midnight.

The Amarillo Fire Marshal reports the cause as undetermined with the area of origin in the bedroom.

An autopsy has been ordered and investigations by the Fire Marshal and APD Special Crimes are ongoing.
