A deadly fire is under investigation in Coventry.

Firefighters found one person dead inside a home on Knotty Oak Road Sunday night while fighting a fire.

The victim's name has not yet been released.

Fire Chief Paul Labbadia said, "When we pulled out, three quarters of the house was going, so it was hard to figure it out, but our main concern was to get lines through that front door to put the lines between the front door and the victim at that point."

Crews were back at the home all day today, sifting through debris and searching for what may have caused the fire. Right now, crews don't expect any foul play.
