Original

Firefighters in Sterling, Ill. made a startling discovery at a house fire early Tuesday morning when crews found a dead body.

Officials tell KWQC the fire was at a house that was thought to be vacant in the 200 block of west Seventh Street.

Fire crews got the call around 3:30 a.m. and were able to extinguish the fire in about 30 minutes.

They say there was heavy smoke and fire coming from the second floor.

Officials haven't released any information about the victim except that the body belongs to a male.

They say they haven't made a positive ID, but have a suspicion on his identity and think he was in the house to stay warm.
