A homeless man was found dead in an Upper East Side subway station, after a fire broke out at the 63rd Street and Lexington Avenue station.
The body of 46-year-old Anthony Hornton was found in an abandoned room of the station, which he had converted into a living space complete with a bed, couch, toaster and refrigerator. Hornton had lived underground off and on since coming out of a children's shelter.
Hornton had co-authored a graphic novel about life underground. In 2004, he met artist Yuome Nguyen Ly, who collaborated with him to write the book.
Firefighters received a call about the fire around 9 p.m. When they arrived upon the scene, they discovered smoke coming from a communications room where they found Hornton's body.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, though firefighters believe it was not started intentionally.
