Body found after St. Clair Shores house fire

(WXYZ) - Investigators are trying to unravel what happened after a deadly discovery was made today at a home on fire in St. Clair Shores. 

Crews from the Macomb County Medical Examiner's Office responded to the home on Alexander Street. Neighbors are stunned after a man's body was discovered in the basement of the house. 

Police tell us there are now two active investigations at the house. 

One is for the body found in the basement after 10 a.m., the other is an arson investigation. This is the second fire at the address in a week.

Valerie Corbett is among the neighbors in disbelief. She was friendly with the family of six who lived there. 

Police tell us they're looking closely into a number of factors that may not add up.

The cause of this fire is still unknown. An autopsy is scheduled to take place Thursday.
