Firemen locate body of man inside burning Playa del Carmen home

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Firemen responding to the report of a Playa del Carmen house fire located the body of a man inside. Emergency services were notified just after midnight Saturday that a house in Villas del Sol was on fire.

Neighbors on Correcaminos Street made the call after seeing smoke escaping through windows of the private home. Firemen were forced to break down the front door to get in.

Once inside, they found the body of an adult man. He has since been identified as José Alberto AR, an occupant of the home. Although it is believed he died of smoke inhalation, an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.
