A man was found dead inside a burning southwest Houston apartment on Tuesday.

Houston firefighters said they were called out to a fire at the Carlton House Apartments in the 4100 block of South Braeswood Boulevard near Linkwood Drive about 9 a.m.

Crews found light smoke coming from a stairwell.

Neighbors said a 58-year-old man was inside a second-floor apartment and they weren't able to get him out.

Firefighters said they went into the apartment and found fire in a bedroom.

"There was a man on the bed and the bed was on fire," HFD spokesman Jay Evans said.

Crews pulled the man out of the unit, but he did not survive, investigators said. The man's name has not been released.

Firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to other units.

No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
