Omaha firefighters discovered the body of an adult male after putting out the flames at an apartment.

Neighbors reported smoke at the 72nd and Seward apartment complex around 1:30 p.m. Friday. As soon as firefighters discovered the body, the Arson unit and Omaha Police Department's Homicide Unit were called to the scene.

Omaha police told WOWT 6 News they believe they know who the victim is, but they are waiting to publicly identify him until his identity is confirmed by a medical examiner.

So far, there's no word yet on what caused the fire. No one else was hurt.
