Deadly house fire still under investigation

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - It may take a while before investigators figure out what started a deadly house fire in the northeast.

Fire crews were back at Isherwood and 16th Streets on Thursday.

Eyewitnesses say an explosion destroyed that home and caused major damage to the neighboring rowhouses.

Crews worked for hours to put out hot spots before discovering a body inside.

The Red Cross says it is assisting nearly two dozen people who can't return to their houses.
