Man found dead in Piraeus apartment after fire

Firefighters discovered the body of a man on Friday in the debris after extinguishing a large fire that broke out earlier in the day on the third floor of an apartment block on 68 Philadelphias Street in Nikaia, a suburb of Piraeus.

According to initial reports, the blaze completely destroyed the property and thick smoke has made it difficult for investigators to enter the premises and ascertain how it started.

The man was not immediately identified.
