CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say one person has died in an overnight fire in a multimillion dollar home on Cape Cod.

The state fire marshal’s office confirms one fatality in the blaze on Stage Island Road in Chatham.

No information on the victim was immediately available, but the person is believed to be a resident of the house. The state medical examiner’s office will confirm the victim’s identity.

The blaze was reported at about 10:15 p.m. Monday. It appears as if the house is a total loss.
