Person found dead in San Francisco home may have been a hoarder

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco police and fire officials are staying tight-lipped about a body found inside a trash-filled home in the city's Inner Richmond District.

Firefighters wearing gas masks had to enter the home on 4th Avenue on Saturday through a front window to get to the body.

Authorities were alerted to the home last week, where debris was packed so densely inside that the front door was nearly blocked.

Neighbors tell ABC7 News that a senior resident in the home has been hospitalized at least once for extreme hoarding.

A body was found in a trash-filled home in San Francisco on April 4, 2015.
