Just after one o'clock Tuesday morning someone passing by the home at N. 7th Street and Avenue D called in the fire.
Crews quickly put out the fire in the kitchen area, but a search of the house found a man down in the back part of the home.
He was rushed to the hospital where he later died. A pet found inside the home also died.
While the investigation is ongoing, a search of the home revealed that there were no smoke detectors in the home.
