A fire at a commercial building in west Loveland claimed the life of a man early Tuesday morning.
Fire crews from Loveland and Fort Collins responded to reports of a fire at 1917 W. Eighth St. at 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to Loveland Fire Rescue Authority.
There, they came across a woman outside the building, who told firefighters there was someone still inside. That person, an unidentified man, was found within eight minutes and, despite receiving CPR at the scene, was later declared dead at Medical Center of the Rockies, LFRA Operations Chief Greg Ward said.
The woman at the scene was not in the building when the fire occurred and was later transported to Medical Center of the Rockies, Ward added.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Loveland Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, among other agencies, are assisting in the investigation, Ward said.
The building where the fire occurred appeared to be some sort of art studio, he added.
