Man dies in Friday morning Brooklyn Park house fire

A man has died after his home broke out in a blaze in Brooklyn Park, Minn. early Friday morning.

A passerby on Highway 252 saw the smoke and reported the fire. Crews arrived to the home on 84th Court just after midnight, and it took several fire departments about two hours to battle the flames. Fire officials are working to determine the cause of the fire, but said it's too early to determine if its origin is suspicious.

The home is reported to be a total loss.
