Police and fire investigators are trying to determine the identity of a person who was found dead inside a house on Poole Road after an intense fire on Wednesday morning.
The fire was reported about 5:30 a.m. in the single-story house near Beverly Drive and the Raleigh Country Club.
A man who called 911 to report the fire said it appeared the house was empty.
“It don’t look like there’s nobody in there, ‘cause like I say I don’t see no lights,” said the caller, whose name was not released.
Firefighters reported heavy smoke coming from the building when they arrived.
