FORT MYERS, Fla. -- At least one person was killed in a house fire overnight in Fort Myers.

A viewer sent Fox 4 incredible video showing flames higher than the house.

An investigation is underway after a home on Grace Avenue off Grand Avenue caught fire at approximately 9 p.m. Sunday night. And we now know that a body was found inside.

Fire Captain Joe Lefebre says the house was already a loss by the time they got there. “We had a fully involved structure, so we had fire out the roof, pretty much all sides of the structure.”

The house looks like it's boarded up and investigators say it could be an abandoned home.
