    A body has been found in one of three triple-deckers that burned in a massive fire in Providence, Rhode Island, over the weekend. 

    The body was found Monday, two days after the Saturday fire in the city's Olneyville section. Authorities have not yet released the person's identity, but have said previously that a woman was missing after the blaze. 

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

    WJAR-TV reports that the city was in the process of condemning the house. An inspector wrote just last week that the "house is a mess" and had no heat or running water. The station reports that the inspector said "occupants were running space heaters" and "numerous propane torches."
