The cause of the fire and circumstances around the death are still unknown.
Police are investigating.
In a separate fire overnight, it took firefighters more than 30 minutes to bring a blaze at a Brunswick home under control.
When the Metropolitan Fire Brigade arrived at 12.20am, the fire at the single-story weatherboard home in McKenzie Street was threatening nearby homes.
"The fire caused the power line to break free from the house and the live wire was lying across the road and front yard," an MFB spokesman said.
Twenty-eight firefighters attacked the fire from the front and back of the property before it was declared safe.
The cause of the fire remains unknown.
