Posted: Updated:
GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP) - Firefighters say one man has died in a house fire in Germantown, northwest of Milwaukee.

Heavy smoke was pouring from the two-story house when firefighters arrived early Saturday. Authorities say they pulled the man from the house, but he wasn't breathing and had no pulse. He was later pronounced dead.

Fire Chief Gary Weiss tells WTMJ-TV the fire may have started near the couch, but that the investigation was continuing.

The victim is believed to have been the only person home at the time. His name has not been released.
