GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Glendale firefighters discovered the burned body of a man in his 70s who died in a kitchen fire early Wednesday morning.

The victim's name has not been released.

Glendale police Officer Tracey Breeden said investigators believe there was nothing suspicious about the man's death. Firefighters discovered unattended food cooking on the stove top at the man's apartment in the 7700 block of N. 51st Avenue.

Fire crews extinguished the flames and contained the fire just to the kitchen. No other apartments were affected.

The victim lives alone at the residence.

Information and evidence gathered at the scene by Glendale police detectives leads them to believe the death was accidental.

The actual cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner's office.

The investigation is ongoing.
