MOUNT PLEASANT, WI (WTAQ) - A man who died in a Racine County house fire just hours before he was to be evicted was identified as 62-year-old Dennis "Butch" Radford of Mount Pleasant. 

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, but Mount Pleasant Police say they're treating it as a crime scene until it's proven otherwise. 

Sheriff's officials were planning to serve an eviction notice at the house Thursday morning. The Racine Journal Times said the house was being foreclosed upon, and its ownership was transferred last month to a suburban Chicago investment firm.

Firefighters could not immediately recover Radford's body due to the structural damage. They saw his body lying on a basement floor. 

The state Fire Marshal's office and the Racine County Arson Task Force are among those investigating.
