The fire was reported at 5:43 p.m. Sunday in a single-family home at 1160 Fitzgerald Ave. in the city's Bayview District. Firefighters were told a person had been trapped in the rear of the house; that person later died, said SFFD Lt. Jonathan Baxter said.

No one else was injured, and no other structures were damaged, said Baxter, who noted that firefighters would remain on the scene into the evening.
