One person is dead following a garage fire on the city's west side Monday afternoon.

IFD Capt. Rita Burris says firefighters were called to the area of 16th Street and North Berwick Avenue shortly after 1:00 and found flames about 30 feet high coming from a detached garage.

Firefighters had the fire under control in about 30 minutes and during that time, they discovered a body inside the garage.  That person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials from IFD and IMPD are investigating the cause of the fire.
