GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — Fire officials say one person was killed in a house fire in Grandville early Sunday morning.

It happened at 12:16 a.m. in the 3200 block of 30th Street SW.

Authorities say multiple crews got on scene within six minutes of receiving the call and saw heavy flames showing in the front of the home. The victim was trapped on the second floor.

Crews were able to find the victim and get him out of the home. He was transported to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after he arrived.

Authorities say they expect to release the man’s name after a Tuesday autopsy.

“There is no indication that this was anything but an accidental fire,” firefighters said in a Sunday afternoon release, but the investigation will continue Tuesday regardless.
