Fire officials are investigating what caused a fatal fire at a Marshalltown home late Monday night.
Crews were called to a home in the 500 block of East Boone Street a little after 11:00 p.m. When they arrived they observed the fire quickly consuming the home.
Officials say a 16-year-old male was killed in the fire. The body was discovered in the home after the fire was extinguished.
The name of the fire victim is not being released at this time while officials make notification to the family.
Officials don’t believe the fire is suspicious in nature, but they are still investigating its cause.
