ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan — A fire was burning at the Pakistani mansion where Osama bin Laden was killed Sunday by U.S. forces. It is not yet known what caused the fire.

President Obama announced bin Laden's death Sunday night in a speech to the nation.

A source tells CNN that bin Laden was shot in the head during a short firefight at the compound. Three other men were also killed in raid, along with a woman who was being used as a human shield.

No Americans were hurt, but a U.S. helicopter had a mechanical problem and crashed during the raid.

Only a small group of people inside the U.S. government knew about this operation ahead of time.
