Officials said 68-year-old Stephen McAllister was found in the living room of his one-story home by firefighters when they arrived at his Greenwood road home early Sunday morning.
They said flames reached to the second floor and a crawl space attic before crews could knock the fire down.
The fire was reported by a neighbor who saw smoke coming from McAllister's home.
Officials said the home is a total loss as fire gutted its inside.
Three fire marshal investigators responded to the fire scene. The body was transported to the state medical examiner's office in Augusta for examination.
