Elderly man dies in SA house fire

An 89-year-old man has died in a house fire in Adelaide's northern suburbs.

Emergency services were called to the Ingle Farm home about 5:15am on Wednesday to find the property alight and the roof partially collapsed.

The man's body was found inside the home after the fire was brought under control.

The Metropolitan Fire Service said it had been difficult for firefighters to access all areas of the house because of the danger of the roof further collapsing.

The fire is not believed to be suspicious.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner.
