A man is dead at the scene a fire in a west-end apartment complex.

Windsor Fire and Rescue were called to 1098 California Ave. at 9 a.m. Monday.

Fire broke out in a second-floor, corner unit some time before that.

Neighbours told CBC Windsor they never heard a fire alarm.

A woman arriving at the complex to take care of her mother called 911.

Windsor police spokesperson Sgt. Matt D'Asti said police responded to check in on a person in the apartment.

He said there was evidence of a fire and that it had "extinguished itself."

Smoke damage could be seen on the exterior wall, above a window.

D'Asti said foul play is not suspected.

Police and fire officials aren't sure when the fire happened or when the man died.

The fire marshal and coroner were to arrive later Monday.
