LANSING, Mich. — A man is dead following a Friday morning house fire on Lansing's west side.

The Lansing Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire at 451 McPherson Ave. at 7:53 a.m. Crews found the ranch-style house with heavy flames coming from the front, the department said in a news release. The fire had already burned through part of the roof.

Neighbors said the resident of the house was likely still inside, but, by the time firefighters found someone in the home, the person was already dead.

Fire department officials say the victim is a man in his 40s or 50s, but he has not yet been positively identified.
