    According to the Manchester Fire Department, the call for the fire at 137 Hazelton Ct. came in around 1:30 a.m.

    Responding crews found heavy fire at the single-family home upon arrival. Firefighters said they had difficulty accessing parts of the house because of hoarding conditions in the building.

    The victim, identified later Monday as 57-year-old William Eggleston, was found in the kitchen. He was taken to Elliot Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    The home is considered a total loss.

    The incident remains under investigation.
