WASHINGTON (AP) — A rowhouse fire in northwest Washington has claimed the life of an employee of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

D.C. police officials identified the victim of Tuesday’s fire as 42-year-old Jeffrey Nedoroscik. USAID said in a statement that Nedoroscik worked for the bureau in Cairo and Africa before serving as an executive officer in Croatia. He was most recently head of the compliance division in Washington.

The agency also said he had published at least two books as well as articles for Foreign Service magazine.

Nedoroscik’s body was found after 7 p.m. Tuesday on the first floor of a building in the 1800 block of First Street NW, in the city’s Bloomingdale neighborhood.

Police and fire officials say the cause of the fire is under investigation.
