DALLAS (AP) — Officials say a 79-year-old retiree has died during a fire at his Dallas home.

Firefighters responded to the blaze early Saturday morning at the house of Walter Simmons and his wife.

The fire — in the home’s front living area — was quickly put out. Afterward, firefighters found Simmons’ body. A cause of death has not been determined.

Simmons’ wife was not injured in the blaze.

Investigators are still trying to determine how the fire began. The blaze caused an estimated $40,000 in damage to the home.
