Although an exact cause of death has not been released, investigators don't believe foul play is involved.
Detectives are still investigating another fatal Cumberland County fire that happened over the weekend. They revealed a new theory Tuesday.
Investigators believe the victim intentionally set the fire Saturday at a home on Cedar Creek Road in Fayetteville.
The victim, whose body was discovered in the burned hose, died from a gunshot wound to the head but police are not treating the death as a homicide. His identity has not been released.
