The body of a man was found in the ashes of a suburban Melbourne house that was subject to a clean-up order from the town to clean up towering piles of junk.
Firefighters extinguished a fire on the Carnegie site at night and then found the body of an unknown man.
& # 39; It's a very tragic situation & # 39 ;, Mayor Glen Eira, Jamie Hyams, told AAP on Friday.
The council had collaborated with the Metropolitan Fire Brigade and welfare institutions to help evacuate the property.

"Hoarding is a matter of mental health and creates a whole series of challenges and we have done what we could to solve them," said Hyams.
The mayor encouraged people who were concerned about hoarding issues to contact their council, but said it was a & # 39; long, lengthy process & # 39; could be, especially if the owner did not cooperate.
Contractors were sent to the property last month to clear the garden, but they had no permission to enter.
A temporary fence was also erected while the cleanup took place.
Up to 30 firefighters were called to the address on Thursday evening.
A police officer was posted overnight and a arsonist was on site to find out the cause of the fire.
