One man is dead, following an early morning house fire in Oxnard.
Firefighters were called to the 1500 block of East First Street just after 2:30 this morning.
Four people had already fled the single family home, but a fifth person, an 85 year old man, was trapped inside.
Oxnard firefighters were able to knock down the blaze in less than ten minutes, but it was too late for Ernest Aaron, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
