"My son turns his head and he goes, 'look up, look at the smoke' and we looked up and both sides were smoking," said Masut Eren, a witness.

Neighbors coming home from work Wednesday evening saw smoke coming out of a white house at 110 Wahl Road in Irondequoit.

"During the course of the search of the house, one victim was found deceased. The scene is an active investigation," said Scott Zampatori, Ridge Culver Fire Department.

Zampatori said the victim was found in a room toward the back of the house. Neighbors say the victim lived alone and the fire department says no one else was home at the time of the fire.

"I just warned the neighbors, stay away, in case of an explosion," Eren said.

The fire department says they are treating the fire as suspicious, which isn't uncommon when dealing with one person who was found in the home. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
