ALAMOSA– Crime scene investigators were investigating a suspicious death and structure fire at the corner of 11th and Denver here Sunday afternoon.

Alamosa firefighters were called to the home around 6 a.m. Sunday and reportedly found flames coming through the roof of the single-story house. While fighting the fire, a body was found inside the home.

Alamosa police department officials on scene, who were being assisted by two officers with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI), said the victim had been identified but were not releasing the name until completing notification of next of kin.

APD Chief Craig Dodd said Sunday that the investigation continues and that he would release additional information later today or Monday.
