Fire crews arrived at the multi-family home, located on the 3800 block of Conroy Trail East, at around 9 p.m. Sunday. Inver Grove Heights Fire Chief Judy Smith-Thill told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that by the time crews arrived, there were heavy flames and smoke.

There were early reports that a person was inside the unit on fire but crews couldn't get inside until the flames were knocked down.

After the first crew was able to put out the flames, another went inside to conduct a search and found a person who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The death is still being investigated by the medical examiner and the state fire marshal.
