A Sleepy Hollow man died in a fire Friday night in the warehouse of a landscaping company he owned in Carpentersville, a relative said.

Kurt Cina was a father of six, and a great person, said his brother-in-law, Joe Curran. He declined to make any further comments.

Cina was found dead after firefighters were called to the scene of a reported structure fire at 4:48 p.m. at Trinity Landscape of Northern Illinois, 1050 Tamarack Lane, according to a news release from the Carpentersville fire and police departments. His body was found near a northern entry door of the warehouse.

The news release didn't name the victim; Curran confirmed it was Cina.

On Saturday morning, debris was still smoldering inside the burned down structure. The property was cordoned off with yellow police tape. Police and fire officials at the scene declined to comment.

The cause of death is under investigation, officials said.

The warehouse housed landscaping equipment and supplies. It was unclear how the fire began.

Authorities said more details would be released later today.
