One man was killed in a fire that broke out in a Maple Ridge townhouse around 11 p.m. PT Thursday.

The body of the unidentified man was found on the second floor of the home on 12000 207A after fire crews knocked the fire out just before midnight.

The cause of the fire has not been released but neighbours say the same unit had a fire a few years ago.
