CINCINNATI -- Homicide investigators were called to an early Monday house fire in West Price Hill.

The one-alarm fire was first reported just before 5:30 a.m. at a home in the 4000 block of West Eighth Street.

Dispatchers said fire crews called for homicide investigators after finding a man's body at the scene.

Investigators said the man's death does not appear to be caused by the fire.

Police said the body was found on the second floor of the home where the fire was apparently set.

A downstairs neighbor said he heard fighting Sunday night from the unit where the body was found.

No other details have been released.
