BETHEL, OH (FOX19) -

Fire officials are investigating the cause of a house fire that killed a man in Clermont County.

Dispatch says a fire was reported in the 2500 block of Davis Road in Bethel around 11 a.m.

Officials said the victim is a man in his 80's.

A 911 call from a neighbor prompted firefighters to respond to the home.

"I'm pretty sure our neighbor's house is on fire," the caller said. "There's a ton of smoke coming from it, like a ton. You can't even hardly see the house." 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but crews said it appears the blaze started in the center of the home.

"Nothing at this point looks suspicious it looks like an accidental fire. We're just trying to pinpoint a point of origin at this point," Bethel-Tate Fire Chief Rick Stowell said.
