FORD CLIFF, Pa. (AP) — State police say one person died in an early morning fire in a shed that was apparently being used as a residence in western Pennsylvania.

Police in Armstrong County say the blaze in South Bend Township was reported at about 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said the shed was behind a residence and was “set up to be occupied with electricity and furniture” as well as a heating source.

Officials said the shed burned to the ground, resulting in one fatality. Police said foul play isn’t suspected and the fire is being investigated as accidental.
