Windham

PUTNAM, Conn. (AP) – Authorities say one person has died in an overnight house fire.

Firefighters responded to the home just before 5:30 a.m. Sunday where they found a man’s body on the first floor after extinguishing the flames.

Fire officials say bitter temperatures made it difficult to put out the fire.

Authorities haven’t released the man’s name. He was the only person in the home.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
