    The victim was found on the first floor of a home on Hillcrest Avenue in Cranford, the Cranford Fire Department said. 

    The intense fire prevented firefighters from entering the house right away, firefighters said. 

    The man was pronounced dead at the scene, firefighters said. His name wasn't released because officials were still notifying his family.
