A 54-year-old man has died and 12 people have been displaced after a deadly fire tore through a three story home in Shaker Heights.

The name of the victim has not been released by the medical examiner.

Firefighters responded to the 3300 block of Sutton Road shortly after 9 p.m. after a house fire was reported.

Crews were able to contain the fire within an hour but remained on scene throughout the night to battle hotspots, officials said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined at this time.
