Victim in deadly fire burned beyond recognition

Investigators are working to identify a person burned beyond recognition in a house fire.

Crews were called to the scene in Germantown before 9pm Saturday.

More than 50 firefighters battled the flames in the 200 block of E. Price Street and got it out in about 45 minutes.

In the meantime, officials said they found a body in back of the basement, and a second person was taken to the hospital. The extent of that person's injuries has not been released.

Police said the building may have been a vacant property.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
