One man died from being trapped in his burning home.

The fire happened in the 2300 block of Mafiel Drive, in East Macon.

Fire Deputy Chief Shane Edwards says when crews arrived heavy fire was on the structure of the home.

Family members warned fire crews that 19-year-old Brandon Johnson was still inside of the house.  Then, firemen went into a primary search of the home.

"They did manage to find him. He was in the bedroom. At that point, they removed the victim from the house and put him into an ambulance. The Medical Center ambulance was on the scene," Edwards explained.

Fire investigators are still figuring out what caused the fire.

We'll provide more updates as they become available.
