A man was found dead inside a City Heights apartment after a devastating fire Wednesday.

Fire crews found the victim inside a second-story apartment on Wightman Street when they arrived around 4:15 a.m.

The front door was locked, and they made a forced entry to find one person dead inside the unit.

The man was in his 50s, according to fire department officials. The cause was a cigarette, but it is unknown if the man was smoking before the incident.

Editor's note: NBC 7 San Diego originally reported that a woman, not a man, died in the fire. We regret the error.
