A joint police and fire service investigation is under way after a man died following a fire at a property in the Borders.
Emergency services were called out to an address at Mill Path in Hawick at about 10:00.
The body of a man was discovered and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said the death was being treated as "unexplained" and a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.
It is the second house fire death in the south of Scotland in the space of two days.
