Authorities in Prince George's County say they're investigating after discovering a body while putting out a fire at an apparently abandoned home in Upper Marlboro.

A fire department spokesman says authorities were called to the 15000 block of Buck Lane around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a fire. It took firefighters about 45 minutes to knock down most of the blaze. Firefighters going through the building then discovered a body which was unidentifiable. An autopsy is planned to determine the person's identity and cause of death.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
