ST CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) - Police in St. Clair Shores are investigating the death of a man found in the basement of a home after a fire.

Authorities tell WXYZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1tujRIg ) that the fire happened Wednesday morning in the Detroit suburb. The victim's name and the cause of his death weren't immediately reported.

Investigators say there was a suspected case of arson at the house a few days earlier.

An autopsy is planned Thursday.
