BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A fire inside a Bridgeport home has turned into a homicide investigation.

Police say they found a body inside the home on the corner of Park Avenue and Worth Street early Thursday morning.

Police Capt. James Viadero tells the Connecticut Post  they don’t know the cause of death, but have not ruled out foul play.

The fire, which broke out late Wednesday night, heavily damaged the third floor of the house.

The state police major crime squad was assisting in the investigation.

The body has been taken to the medical examiner’s office in Farmington for an autopsy.
