ANSON - Anson fire officials confirmed Sunday that a man died in a morning house fire.

 Fire officials said the call for a fire on Moore Street came in around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.


About eight departments responded to get the fire contained in a little over an hour but fire crews said the fire had gotten a head start on them.


The man's identity has not been released but officials said he was an adult. They believe he lived alone.


The home is a total loss.


No firefighters were hurt, according to Anson fire crews.


In the coming week, the Maine State Fire Marshal will be investigating a cause.
