A 63-year-old man was found dead inside a Flushing apartment building Friday morning after the FDNY extinguished a fire there, police report.

The victim, whose identity was not immediately announced because his family had not yet been notified, was found with severe trauma and burns to his body inside of 43-06 159 St. after the authorities responded to a fire there a little after 6 a.m., police said. Emergency Medical Services took the man to New York Hospital Queens, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The fire marshal will determine the cause of the fire and the Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death, police said, and the investigation is ongoing.
