Holiday, Florida -- The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has identified the body of a man found dead inside a house fire as 59-year-old Wyatt Vanover.

Pasco County Sheriff's deputies and fire officials say preliminary evidence shows the fire apparently started in the kitchen of the home in the 2100 block of Flintwood Drive after something was left on the stove. 

At the time, homeowners told police no one was supposed to be at the home at the time of the fire. Authorities say Vanover was a homeless man with a history of squatting in abandoned homes or the homes of snowbirds.
