A 63-year-old man died after a fire ripped through his North Anson home early Thursday morning.

The fire swept through the North Maine Street home in the pre-dawn hours, and firefighters found the homeowner’s body in his kitchen Thursday morning, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The man has not yet been identified, as authorities work to notify relatives outside Maine, McCausland said.

Investigators with the Maine fire marshal’s office are working to determine the cause of the blaze.
