SALINA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been found dead in a burned home in northeastern Oklahoma.

Mayes County Sheriff's Capt. Rod Howell says the body was found after firefighters put out the blaze early Wednesday near Salina, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Tulsa.

The man's name has not been released. Howell said the body is being sent to the state medical examiner's officer for positive identification and to determine the cause and manner of death.

Howell said there appears to have been no one else in the home.

Howell said the state fire marshal's office will determine the cause of the fire, which was reported shortly before 1 a.m.
