Officials said a 67-year-old man was found unresponsive and not breathing inside the home. He was pulled out of the home and treated by Hollywood Fire Rescue crews at the scene before being transported to Memorial Hospital, where he died.
"I busted out the back window, opened the window and tried to get inside because there were so many flames," said neighbor Billy Palmeri, who helped rescue the homeowner from inside.
Officials haven't released the name of the man who died. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
