Crews extinguish fire at Orlando rooming house where body found

Deputies: No connection currently to discovery of body last week


ORLANDO, Fla. – No one was inside or hurt after a fire happened Monday night at an Orlando rooming house, authorities say.

The fire broke out before 9 p.m. at the house at 2007 Morning Drive.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said crews were able to extinguish the fire and eight adults were referred to the Red Cross.

Lt. Paul Hopkins confirmed to Local 6 this was the same house where Harry Lieble (pictured, below) was found dead last week.
