"It was discovered that there was a victim inside," said Michigan State Police Sgt. Kevin Dowling.

As of press time, the gender of the victim had not been determined. Police, however, said they think the person who died in the fire was an adult.

A state police fire investigator was expected to survey the scene of the blaze later this morning.
