Police are looking into a fire on the southwest side that left one person dead. Firefighters arrived to the Silver Springs apartments off South Willow near S. Post Oak around 11pm Thursday. They found fire in a downstairs unit, and then noticed the flames had spread upstairs and into the attic. Firefighters decided to pull a second alarm.

The man's body was found in the downstairs unit where the fire started.

"He was like in his 50s. I saw him a couple of times," said the victim's neighbor, Kenny Garcia. "He was a nice guy, you know. He was always quiet."

Arson detectives are investigating.
