BROOKLYN (CBS) - Many questions surround a deadly overnight fire in Brooklyn.

A two-alarm fire broke out at a two-story home on Warwick Avenue in East New York just after midnight.

After putting out the blaze, firefighters discovered a "severely burned" body inside. The body was found bound at the hands and feet.

The fire has been declared suspicious. Investigators are trying to determine whether it was set to cover up a homicide.

The medical examiner's office will determine whether the man died in the flames or was killed prior.
