WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Fire officials are investigating the cause of a house fire in Wichita that killed an elderly man.

Firefighters found the man's body Sunday while fighting the blaze in east Wichita.

Fire Capt. Stu Bevis says the man's son was in the yard of the house when firefighters arrived. The man told officials he tried to rescue his father but the heat and smoke became too dangerous.

It was the 10th fire death in Wichita this year. Last year, the city had five fire deaths.
