One person is dead after an apartment complex in Anoka.

According to the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office, authorities responded early Saturday morning to a report of a fire. Fire crews evacuated the apartment complex, but they were unable to get into the victim’s apartment.

Fire officials said it was a small fire in the bedroom of an apartment that belonged to a male victim. They believe the victim is in his 60s but have not identified him at this time. The apartment building has a total of eight units, and most residents there should be able to return to their apartments by sometime Saturday afternoon.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
