Prince George’s County firefighters were called to the Oxon Hill home Monday about 8:15 a.m. They found heavy fire at the home, and extinguished the blaze in about 20 minutes.

Fire department spokesman Mark Brady says a man who had limited mobility was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
