The fire was contained shortly after firefighters arrived and the body was found inside the building, according to police.

No other injuries were reported.

No additional details were provided about the extent of the fire but investigators with the Daly City Police Department and the North County Fire Authority are working to determine the fire’s cause and whether foul play was involved.
