Man dies in Annapolis house fire

Annapolis fire officials say a man has died in a two-alarm house fire in the Eastport section of the city.

The fire broke out in a home across the road from a fire station and firefighters were not hindered by snow.

The fire was reported Friday about 12:50 a.m. Firefighters saw heavy smoke and said the fire spread through most of the first floor, into the second.

It took 36 firefighters nearly an hour to put out the blaze.

Firefighters found the man dead on the second floor. He has not been identified, and the cause of the fire has not been determined.
