One person was found dead Sunday morning after a fire at a Salt Lake City apartment building, authorities said.

Jim Kavoukas, 51, passed away after what the SLCPD twitter account is calling an “accidental fire.” According to the tweet, Kavoukas was alone at the time of the incident.

SLFCD crews were dispatched to the Beck Street Apartments at 1729 N. Beck St. around 8:30 A.M. after reports of a blaze, said Salt Lake City Fire Department Capt. Adam Archuleta. They found Kavoukas already deceased.

No further details were immediately available. Salt Lake City police are currently investigating.
