Firefighters say a child has died in a fire at a rural central Iowa house.

The fire was reported around 8 a.m. Thursday in a house northwest of Perry. Reports say firefighters were told a child was trapped in an upstairs area of the house.

Fire officials say that when crews arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames. Officials confirmed that a child died in the fire. The identity of the child has not yet been released.

The Iowa State Fire Marshall's office is helping with the investigation. A cause of the fire has not been determined, but fire officials said they do not suspect foul play.
