An investigation is underway after a fatal fire Saturday morning.

The Oklahoma City Fire Department responded to a home in the 3200 block of S. Lee around 7:50 a.m. Crews said there was one male victim located just inside the front door suffering from burns. EMSA was requested on scene for transport. 

After a search of the home, crews determined the victim was home alone at the time of the fire. 

Shortly before 10 a.m., OKCFD learned the victim died at Integris Southwest Medical Center. His name has not been released.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. But OKCFD said there is no indication of foul play at this time.

The victim's body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine cause of death.
