A man was found dead following an early Sunday morning fire in Monrovia.

Monrovia, Harvest and Huntsville firefighters responded to the fire at a single wide mobile home on Dan Tibbs Road around 3 a.m.

Authorities said there was one fatality; a man had apparently tried to get out but was found dead outside the rear of the mobile home. Authorities believe smoke inhalation may possibly be the cause of the man's death. His body has been sent to the forensics lab in Huntsville for an autopsy.

The cause of the fire is unknown, but the location is being treated as a crime scene at this time. Madison County Fire Marshal's Office, the State Fire Marshal and the Madison County Sheriff's Office are all investigating the case.
