POWAY (CNS) - A man who appeared to have been shot was found dead in a North County home Thursday by firefighters who extinguished a blaze that tore through the residence.
The house fire in the 13500 Robley Ranch Road in Poway was reported about 12:45 p.m., sheriff's spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said.
A short time later, crews reported finding a body on a living-room couch inside the charred structure.
The unidentified man appeared to have been shot, but it was not immediately clear if his death was a suicide, homicide or accident, according to Caldwell.
Personnel with the county Medical Examiner's Office went to to the burned-out house to document the scene and take custody of the body. The sheriff's bomb-arson unit was called in to determine the cause of the blaze, Caldwell said.
Authorities believe a man had lived alone in the residence near the intersection of Poway and Community roads.
