We present the results of high angular resolution observations at millimeter wavelengths of the high-mass star forming region G24.78+0.08, where a cluster of four young stellar objects is detected. We discuss evidence for these to be high-mass (proto)stars in different evolutionary phases. One of the sources is detected only in the continuum at 2 and 2.6 mm and we suggest it may represent a good candidate of a high-mass protostar.
