Crews working to ID victim from fatal upstate New York fire


GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- Investigators are trying to identify the victim who died in an upstate New York house fire over the weekend.

Guilderland Fire Chief Scott Jill says the blaze broke out around 4 p.m. Sunday and oxygen tanks inside the home complicated efforts to extinguish the fire. Neighbors reported hearing loud bangs, which Jill says were the tanks exploding inside the home.

No one else was injured in the fire.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
