Police arrived about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to find heavy smoke billowing out of the house.

Officers entered the home and saw a fire in the kitchen and a man unconscious nearby. The victim was taken outside and given CPR before being transported to St. Cloud Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The name of the victim won't be released until his family is notified.
