An investigation will get underway today into Tasmania's latest fatal domestic fire.

Crews were called to a unit on Gilbert Street at Latrobe to find the structure completely engulfed around 9:40 last night. 

Firefighters found a body inside after extinguishing the flames, but police won't confirm the details of the deceased, who's believed to be a male resident of the unit.

Two people including a 90-year-old woman died in house fires late last month.
