PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A man is dead after an early morning fire at his home in Portland.

Portland Fire and Rescue says firefighters responded just before 4 a.m. Sunday and found flames in the finished attic of a one-story home. That's where the man's body was found.

The home's other resident, a woman, escaped uninjured. It's not clear what caused the fire.

The medical examiner's office is investigating the cause of death. The man's identity has not been released.
