PEACHTREE CITY, GA (CBS46) -

Neighbors called 911 for a house fire on Adams Falls in Peachtree City.

When fire crews arrived at about 5 a.m., the home was engulfed in flames, and the man who is the sole resident of the home could not be located.

After the Peachtree City Fire Department got the fire under control, investigators found a person who was dead inside the home.

Meagan Vinson, who was visiting family on the street for the holidays, told CBS Atlanta News she was awaken by the fire truck sirens.

"You could see the embers going taller than these tall trees, going across to the house here," Vinson said.

The victim's identity has not been revealed pending an autopsy.

The fire is being investigated by the Peachtree City Fire Marshal's Office, the State Fire Marshal's Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
