One dead in house fire in Graham

A man was found dead in his home after a fire broke out in Graham on Sunday morning. The house is located in the 22500 block of 90th Avenue East. Firefighters were called to the scene at 10:15 a.m. after neighbors said the home was on fire. The home was burning heavily when firefighters arrived, and when they tried to enter the front door, a sign was posted warning people to stay out, saying there were explosives inside.
