A 58-year-old man was found dead in a fire Thursday in Bridgeport on the South Side.

Firefighters responded about 1:40 p.m. to a six-unit building at 2632 S. Wells St., according to department spokesman Larry Merritt. Heavy fire was coming from the front window.

Inside, firefighters found Angelo Crivilare near the front of the building, Merritt and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
