Milwaukee firefighters found a body in building Wednesday that they fought a fire at on Tuesday. The fire department said it was called Tuesday afternoon for smoke coming out of a building near Greenfield Avenue and Layton Boulevard. Firefighters extinguished the fires and conducted multiple searches of all accessible areas and investigated for cause and origin with the Milwaukee Police Department, the fire department said. Wednesday afternoon, the fire department was called back to the same location for a report of a body found in the building. "The discovery of the deceased individual during the Milwaukee Fire Department's search and rescue operations was nearly impossible given the extreme hoarder conditions throughout the building," the fire department said in a news release.
